"Love's Labour's Lost is an ideal summer comedy in the perfect setting... the oasis of Bryant Park, surrounded by New York City. I plan to transport us all to London (read Navarre) during a mythic late Belle Époque era, framed in the British Music Hall" - shares Boomerang Theatre Company's newly appointed Associate Artistic Director Cailin Hefferman. - "Worlds collide when a coterie of sophisticated French noble woman run circles around their less able English lords. Rounding out the the cross-section of motley humanity are a young boy, two pedantical would-be lovers, a bobbie, a clown, a bombastic Spaniard, a conniving French chaperone and a lusty country wench. I am inspired and challenged by the elegant whimsy of the word play to translate that language into action."
