A reclusive librarian -- the sole character -- finds a book that is 123 years overdue. When he opens it and finds a ticket for a Chinese laundry in London, his curiosity compels him to redeem the ticket leading him to another clue that sends him around the world on a global quest to track down the book's original borrower in Underneath the Lintel. Played by Paul Morella, the Librarian uncovers a mystery that seems to transcend the ages, but are the results due to investigation or madness?

Definitely one of Shakespeare's weirder plays, but entertaining. First half a tragedy, second a comedy -- it was two plays in one! The actors were really good, especially Naomi Jacobson (Paulina) and Daniel Stewart (Leontes -- who is Patrick Stewart's much-taller but similarly bald son).
We had really good seats near the front with lots of leg room. A little cool, so bring a sweater.
Shakespeare’s Late Romance is filled with the fantasy of a fairy tale. Suspecting his wife Hermione and his friend Polixenes of infidelity, King Leontes is driven to acts of jealous rage. Years later, a miraculous turn of events brings a chance for redemption. What was lost is found and, with it, new wellsprings of happiness.
