Shakespeare in Love

The beloved, Oscar-winning film comes to life onstage in an extravagant production that’s both wildly funny and irresistibly romantic. Young Will Shakespeare has writer’s block … the deadline for his new play, Romeo and Ethel, The Pirate’s Daughter, is fast approaching but he’s in desperate need of inspiration. Enter Viola, a headstrong noblewoman and admirer of Will’s, who disguises herself as a boy so she can skirt the law and appear in his play. But when the playwright and his muse fall in love, the plot undergoes some surprising rewrites. Mistaken identities, courtly intrigue, and backstage bickering are all part of the fun in this raucous romantic comedy of errors that reminds us that all the world’s a stage and love is unrehearsed.  

Based on the screenplay by Marc Norman & Tom Stoppard 
Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall 
Music by Paddy Cunneen 
Originally produced on the West End by Disney Theatrical Productions & Sonia Friedman Productions, directed by Declan Donnellan, and designed by Nick Ormerod 
Shakespeare in Love is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
