Love's Labour's Lost - Cast
  • “FOUR STARS! A rocking new take on the classic!” - Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Daily News
  • “FOUR STARS! Freely but fondly adapted by Alex Timbers, and scored with more than a dozen superb tunes by Michael Friedman, this gleeful riff on Shakespeare is a tall, fruity drink of intoxicating delight.” - David Cote, Time Out New York
  • “A wacky good time that fires on all cylinders!” - Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post
  • “Literate and loony - there's a generous expansiveness to this Love's Labour's Lost. A summertime confection as tasty and ephemeral as cotton candy!” - Thom Geier, Entertainment Weekly
  • “Exhilarating – a delightful night of theater. The creative team behind the critically acclaimed Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson has managed to turn the spirit of the original into something completely contemporary.” - John Platt, WFUV

This musical adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy — filled with romance, revelry and enchanting music — brings together the language of the bard with a fresh contemporary pop-rock score. The King and his best buds decide at their five-year college reunion to swear off the joys of women. But when four cute, clever girls from their past show up, they’re forced to reconsider all of that nonsense! Smart, sexy, outrageous, and irreverent, Love's Labour's Lost is a madcap celebration of true love and coming of age.

Obie Award winner Michael Friedman and two-time Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers, who wrote the hit musical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, reunite for this fresh and unexpected evening of song, sonnets and Shakespeare, which premiered in New York's renowned Shakespeare in the Park. This large cast musical comedy is perfect for both professional companies and high school- / college-age students.
