Shakespeare in Love at the Noel Coward theatre in London
The comedy depicts promising young playwright Will Shakespeare tormented by writer’s block until he finds his muse in the form of passionate noblewoman, Viola De Lesseps. Their forbidden love draws many others, including Queen Elizabeth, into the drama and inspires Will to write the greatest love story of all time, Romeo and Juliet.
Shakespeare in Love is based on the Oscar-winning film by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard, which starred Joseph Fiennes, Gwyneth Paltrow, Judi Dench and a whole host of British comedy actors.
Shakespeare in Love has been adapted for stage by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot) and the show in London is directed by Declan Donnellan and designed by Nick Ormerod, the driving force behind the world-renowned theatre company, Cheek by Jowl.
This sweeping romantic comedy will transport you back to Shakespeare’s London, teeming with vibrant colours, characters, music and life. Oh, and there’s a bit with a dog!
Shakespeare in Love, which will have a cast of 26, is co-produced by Disney and Sonia Friedman Productions in what promises to be the theatrical event of 2014.
