Shakespeare in Love by Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman; adapted by Lee Hall
The Oscar-winning film comes to life on the stage! Passion and poetry abound in bawdy and boisterous Elizabethan England, where young Will Shakespeare meets his muse for the world’s greatest romance, Romeo and Juliet. The real-life Will is irresistibly romantic in this wildly hilarious plot.
Staged inside the cool and comfortable Center for the Performing Arts (CPA) Theatre at Illinois State University.
