Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labour’s Lost” Comes to MLS Libraries


That “wimpled, whining, purblind, wayward boy, that senior-junior, giant-dwarf, Dan Cupid,” as Shakespeare called him, will be visiting seven Metropolitan Library System locations when MLS presents the Reduxion Theatre’s production of “Love’s Labour’s Lost” in March and April.

“It’s Shakespeare for everybody,” said MLS Director of Outreach Services Dana Morrow.  “The play is about the King of Navarre who, with three of his friends, decides to devote three years to study and to ignore all women during that time.  You can imagine how long that lasts.  It is full of puns and comical wordplay, and was first performed in 1597 for Queen Elizabeth I.  She liked it.  So will you.”

All performances are free and will be on Saturday afternoons beginning at 1:00p.m.
