From Blackfriar’s Playhouse in Staunton, VA, the American Shakespeare Center On Tour brings Love’s Labour’s Lost to Salem Wicked Fate They have been at a great feast of languages, and stolen the scraps. – V.i In Love’s Labour’s Lost, the King of Navarre and his three schoolmates are ripe for an education in love from the Princess of France and her three ladies. Joining the lovers is a brilliantly goofy troupe of clowns, including the love-warrior Don Armado and the lust-sick rogue Costard, who ardently pursue the affections of a winsome country maid — and who perform an unforgettable pageant for the royals. Written around the same time as Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this giddy and extravagant romantic comedy is Shakespeare’s most exuberant wordfest — a joyful carnival of love, loss, and hope.
