THIS ONE'S FOR EVERYONE

“Shall I compare thee to a something something… mummers play?” And so begins one of Shakespeare’s most famous sonnets, and this charming story of love, inspiration, muses, and art, based on the Oscar-winning film. This smart and poignant tale offers a smattering of allusions that will delight anyone familiar with the Bard—or simply the English language. This story is as crowd-pleasing as mistaken identities, a shipwreck, and love triumphant, and is set in a time when a Londoner could still utter the words: “Shakespeare? Never heard of him.” A great play for the entire family.

 

“A big-hearted hit.” –Variety

Content Advisory: A bawdy tale of love contains some mature themes and sexual situations making this more suitable for audiences from middle school and beyond.

Approximate runtime is 2 hours and 25 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission.
