Lakewood Theatre Company presents
Shakespeare in Love
November 1 – December 8, 2019
Lakewood Center for the Arts
Lakewood Theatre Company continues its 67th season of live theatre with Shakespeare in Love, a romantic comedy, based on the award-winning screenplay by Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman. The story was adapted for the stage by Lee Hall with music by Paddy Cunneen.
Viola will stop at nothing to join Will’s company of players. Even though it is illegal for women to take the stage, she disguises herself as a man and finds herself leading a double life — wildly in love with Will, yet unable to declare her love. Amidst mistaken identities, backstage antics, and onstage drama, their passionate and forbidden love affair inspires Will to write his masterpiece — Romeo and Juliet. This romantic adventure of love, drama, and comedy is sure to equally delight Shakespeare fans and those who shy away from the Bard.
