SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE
Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall
Based on the screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard
Directed by Maggie Mancinelli-Cahill
April 5 – May 12
Young Will Shakespeare has writer’s block… the deadline for his new play is fast approaching but he desperately needs some inspiration. That is, until he finds his muse — Viola. This beautiful young woman is Will’s greatest admirer and will stop at nothing (including donning a moustache) to appear in his next play. As love blossoms, so does the comedy, great romance and playwriting. Join theREP for this immersive and sumptuous adaptation of the Academy Award-winning screenplay, complete with swordfights, secret trysts, backstage disasters, and a dog.
“Marvelously fluid, riotously funny, and often intensely, even startlingly poignant…This may be, in part at least, a comedy about Shakespeare falling in love; but joking aside, it could just make you fall, all over again, in love with Shakespeare.” —Chicago Tribune
