Central Piedmont Theatre To Perform SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE
Central Piedmont Theatre is pleased to perform "Shakespeare in Love" Sept. 27 - Oct. 6, on the renowned Halton Theater stage, located on the college's Central Campus.
How did Shakespeare become the Shakespeare we know today? In this exciting play by Lee Hall, adapted from the screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard, we get to witness a version of what might have been. Did Shakespeare have writer's block from time to time? Did he need a muse to write his famous tragedy "Romeo and Juliet?"
Lee Hall's version of this successful screenplay follows the same story of Shakespeare meeting and falling in love with an aristocratic woman named Viola De Lesseps who wishes she could be an actor, and transforms it for the stage, just as Shakespeare did with stories in his day. It is funny, clever, filled with references to Shakespeare's work, and a delight for theater goers of all ages.
