The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey celebrates art and William Shakespeare with its next Main Stage production, Shakespeare in Love, opening Oct. 11 and continuing through mid-November.
This new play is based on the Oscar-winning screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard and adapted for the stage by Lee Hall. The production features music by Paddy Cunneen and is directed by the Theatre’s artistic director, Bonnie J. Monte, with musical direction by Kris Kukul. Patrons can purchase tickets at The F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre in Madison by calling the box office at 973-408-5600 or by going online at www.ShakespeareNJ.org.
This exuberant theatrical “love letter” is filled with music and a huge cast of colorful characters (and one feisty dog). The play introduces Will Shakespeare as he struggles with writer’s block – and a forbidden romance with the woman who inspires some of his greatest work. An epic Elizabethan extravaganza – it is rousing, funny, and a beautiful homage to love, art and the Bard himself.
Single tickets for Shakespeare in Love begin at $49 for preview performances and $69 for regular performances. The Theatre is proud to bring back its successful 30 Under 30 Program for the 2017 season. Patrons aged 30 and under can purchase tickets for only $30 with valid ID, subject to availability. For tickets, patrons can call the box office at 973-408-5600 or visit www.ShakespeareNJ.org.
