Love’s Labour’s Lost

About This Show

A love letter to Shakespeare in the Park
from the creators of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

Romance, revelry and enchanting music ignite in this contemporary yet lovingly faithful musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy. The King and his best buds decide at their five-year college reunion to swear off the joys of women. But when four cute, clever girls from their past show up, they’re forced to reconsider all of that nonsense! Smart, sexy, outrageous, and irreverent, Love’s Labour’s Lost is a madcap celebration of true love and coming of age.

Obie Award winner MICHAEL FRIEDMAN (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) and two-time Tony Award nominee ALEX TIMBERS (Peter and the Starcatcher) reunite for this fresh and unexpected evening of song, sonnets and Shakespeare, continuing The Public Theater’s long tradition of premiering new musicals in New York’s most magical summer setting.

Tickets to Shakespeare in the Park tickets are always free to the public. Up to two tickets per person can be acquired in-person on the day of a performance when the box office opens at noon, up until curtain time. Please note that people do line up for tickets early as there is a limited availability. Alternatively, online reservations can be made by lottery for every performance.
