Description

You haven’t seen Shakespeare until you’ve seen Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Direct from London, Love’s Labour’s Lost is a celebration of young love. It’s also a festive parade of every weapon in the playwright’s comic arsenal from excruciating cross-purposes to silly impersonations.

In this timeless comedy, the King of Navarre persuades three friends to join him in a vow of celibacy so they can concentrate on their studies—what they didn’t anticipate was a visit from the beautiful princess of France and her three gorgeous ladies-in-waiting.
