WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This exuberant theatrical "love letter" is based on the award-winning film of the same name and it's no less a joy than the original screen version. Filled with music and a huge cast of colorful characters (including a feisty little dog), the play captures the Bard as he struggles with writer's block and a forbidden romance with the woman who becomes the muse who inspires some of his greatest work. An epic Elizabethan extravaganza, it is rousing, funny, and a beautiful homage to love, art, and Shakespeare himself.
