Stratford: The Stratford Festival holds a viewing party of “Love’s Labours Lost” on May 28
Tuesday, May 26, 2020
Shakespeare’s most poetic love story comes to vivid life in this Stratford Festival production, directed by Tony and Olivier award winner John Caird. A coming-of-age story unlike any other, Love’s Labour’s Lost dwells sweetly on the naiveté of youth while leading its protagonists to understand the true meaning – and cost – of love. This “sublime” (Toronto Star) “masterpiece” (National Post) was called “the most vibrant production of the play I’ve ever seen” (am New York). With a cast that includes Sarah Afful, Juan Chioran, Ruby Joy, Josue Laboucane, Tom Rooney, Mike Shara and Sanjay Talwar, “it’s impossible to say who gives the most delicious performance in this comic feast” (Torontoist).
