Now through November 12, the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey presents Shakespeare In Love. This exuberant theatrical “love letter” is based on the award-winning film of the same name and it’s no less a joy than the original screen version. Filled with music, a huge cast of colorful characters, the play captures the Bard as he struggles with writer’s block and a forbidden romance with the woman who becomes the muse who inspires some of his greatest work. An epic Elizabethan extravaganza, it is rousing, funny, and a beautiful homage to love, art, and Shakespeare himself.
Here's a look at some scenes from the play.
The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey is located at 36 Madison Avenue, Madison. For more information visit www.shakespearenj.org/
