Can a play show us the very truth and nature of the world's greatest playwright? As the Bard's legacy is celebrated around the globe in 2016 with Shakespeare 400, the boisterous new comedyShakespeare in Love takes a glorious stab at doing just that. But with little known of Shakespeare beyond the dates of his birth and death - both April 23 - the fun is all in the imagining.

In the Stratford production, Will Shakespeare will be played by Luke Humphrey, a young actor who quickly established himself as a leading player on the Stratford stage and beyond. The production also stars Shannon Taylor, Tom McCamus, Stephen Ouimette, Karen Robinson, andSaamer Usmani.
