by Liz Cearns - Dec 18, 2016

BWW Review: LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST - Lesser Script Done with Extended Farce at Great Lakes Theater
by Roy Berko - Apr 12, 2016

Love's Labour's Lost, a production of which is now on stage at Great Lakes Theater, is one of Shakespeare's earliest plays. As such, some critics believe that it is the 'work of a playwright just learning his art.' Though many of Shakespeare's plays are brilliant and have effected the course of Western Literature, Shakespeare scholars tend to view this script as a minor work in the Bard's folio. It has never been one of the playwright's more popular works. (more...)
