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, this lush and lusty production celebrates the power of live theater. Cleveland Play House artistic director Laura Kepley directs the play, adapted by Lee Hall from Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard's screenplay.
