In LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST, romance, revelry and enchanting music ignite in this contemporary yet lovingly faithful musical adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy. 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. LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST was developed in collaboration with Les Freres Corbusier.

LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST featured scenic design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by Jennifer Moeller, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, sound design by Acme Sound Partners and choreography by Danny Mefford.
