WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman's Academy Award-winning film bursts to life on the Asolo Rep stage. Promising young playwright Will Shakespeare is tormented by writer's block while two competing theater managers are demanding new comedies replete with romance, adventure, and maybe a funny bit with a dog. To his rescue comes the beautiful and vibrant Viola, Will's greatest admirer and the inspiration he's been longing for. But Viola has a secret, and Will finds himself star-cross'd. This sweeping romantic comedy is a love letter to the arts. As Viola proclaims, "I will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all."
