    Actors Theatre Kicks Off 51st Season with Shakespeare
    Print this page

    Actors Theatre of Louisville is turning the city’s eyes toward the Bard this week, kicking off the 2014-2015 season with Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost.

    The production, a reimagining of one of the Bard’s more obscure and less-frequently performed comedies, has been adapted three members of The Moving Company, a Minneapolis-based theatre.

    The comedy unfolds as the king and his comrades, who have taken a vow to get rid of worldly distractions, find themselves in a kerfuffle when a princess arrives with her ladies-in-waiting.  But in the signature twist of The Moving Company, all is not as the good William originally penned.

    Because in this version of Love’s Labour’s Lost, director Dominique Serrand and co-adaptors Steve Epp and Nathan Keepers, have mixed and mingled the words and works of all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays in a new and lighthearted version of the play.

    Love’s Labour’s Lost runs now through September 21st. Tickets start at $25 and area available online or by calling the Actors Theatre box office at 502.584.1205. Actors Theatre also offers discount ticket options that can be found on their website.

    Several special performances of Love’s Labour’s Lost are planned, including an audio described performance on Sunday, September 14 at 2:30 pm and an open captioned performance on Saturday, September 13 at 4pm.
