Shakespeare in Love

Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall

Directed by Bonnie J. Monte

"The play's a crowd tickler − mistaken identities, a shipwreck, a pirate king, a bit with a dog and love triumphant."

This exuberant theatrical "love letter" is based on the award-winning film of the same name and it's no less a joy than the original screen version. Filled with music, a huge cast of colorful characters (including a feisty little dog), the play captures the Bard as he struggles with writer's block and a forbidden romance with the woman who becomes the muse who inspires some of his greatest work. An epic Elizabethan extravaganza, it is rousing, funny, and a beautiful homage to love, art, and Shakespeare himself.

Provident Bank of New Jersey and Beacon Trust are proud sponsors of Shakespeare in Love.

Sponsored in part, by Dr. W. John Bauer and Nancy B. Boucher.
