Shakespeare In Love opens in West End this summer

Tickets are on sale today for Shakespeare in Love.  The show is  based on the oscar  film and will premiere in the West End in July.  The cast has not yet been announced.

From the theatre: “Promising young playwright Will Shakespeare is tormented by writer’s block until he finds his muse in the form of passionate noblewoman, Viola De Lesseps. Their forbidden love draws many others, including Queen Elizabeth, into the drama and inspires Will to write the greatest love story of all time, Romeo and Juliet.  This sweeping romantic comedy will transport you back to Shakespeare’s London, teeming with vibrant colours, characters, music and life. Oh, and there’s a bit with a dog!

Producer Sonia Friedman said the story “cries out to be staged”. She continued: “Shakespeare in Love bursts with life and is a moving and hilarious celebration of everything we love about the inspirational and transformative power of theatre.” The project has been in development for “several years”.
