Shakespeare by the Sea: Love's Labour's Lost

Before seeing Shakespeare by the Sea’s Love’s Labour’s Lost, I would have said it was one of The Bard’s least-likeable comedies. It requires a lot of work to decipher the dense language and silly plot and all the effort can seem to pay off with scant laughter. Not this production! It’s as if the young and energetic cast has some magical universal translator that makes even the longest speeches easily understandable. The play is a perfect mix of a charming love-story powered by the believable performances of the four love-struck swains and their sharp-witted--and tongued--objects of affection, and the over-the-top comedy of the secondary characters. This production is infused with 1950’s flavor reflected in the swell costumes and the harmony-ladened music. People of all ages should see this show-- even the pre-teens who attended looked enthralled and entertained.---Kate Watson
