About This Show

Instinct wrestles intellect in an exuberant comedy about the passage to adulthood. In a zealous moment of idealism, the King of Navarre and his buddies turn to their books, swearing off less civilized pursuits–namely, girls. But when a high-spirited princess and her attendants show up, the young men find their pulse rates in the danger zone. Infatuation, adolescent pranks and playful confusion lead to more serious matters, revealing the cost of real love. Treat yourself to Shakespeare’s lively repartee in this world bursting with a sensuality that cannot be contained.
