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 their vows. Add in an outlandish Spanish exchange student and a performance art-loving professor, and love and devotion are put to the test with hilarious results. Smart, sexy, outrageous and irreverent, Love's Labour's Lostis a madcap celebration of true love and coming of age

"Love's Labour's Lost" (at the Delacorte Theatre in Central Park) is so good on so many levels that it makes you excited about not only what the American musical can do but how well it reflects on those producers who support the new, full-out." -The New Yorker
