WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Academy Award-winning romantic comedy Shakespeare in Love comes to the stage, complete with sword fights, secret trysts, and backstage drama.

Filled with action-packed adventure, fiery romance, and wit, get ready to fall head over heels for Cleveland Play House artistic director Laura Kepley's lush, lavish, and lusty production that celebrates the power of live theatre.
Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall; based on the screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard.
