About the event
The long-awaited stage adaption of the film that won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Shakespeare in Love is a masterful story of love and drama. Plagued by debt, tormented by writer’s block and in desperate need of a new hit, promising new playwright Will Shakespeare finds his muse in the form of passionate young noblewoman Viola de Lesseps. Their forbidden love soon draws everyone, including Queen Elizabeth, into the drama, and inspires Will to write the greatest love story of all time: Romeo and Juliet.
Based on the Oscar-winning screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard, Shakespeare in Love has been deftly adapted for the stage by Lee Hall and has won huge acclaim from critics in London.
Shakespeare in Love is directed by Cathy Airhart Webb, with musical direction/performance by Kirby Rambin and Claudia Long, costumes by Ulrich Arts, and set design by David Kaul.
