American Shakespeare Center to present ‘Love’s Labour’s Lost’ at The Lyric tonight, Sept. 14
On Friday, Sept. 14, 2012 at 8 p.m., the American Shakespeare Center presents “Love’s Labour’s Lost.”
In the play, 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.
Gold $22, Silver $17. Limited quantity of student tickets available for $10.
