    Austin, TX: The Long Center and Austin Shakespeare join together to expand the Long Center Cinema series.

    In LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST, The King of Navarre and his courtiers have forsworn every kind of pleasure. But a visit from the Princess of France and her lovely entourage soon has this all-male ‘academe’ tearing up its own rulebook. Shakespeare’s celebration of the claims of young love is a festive parade of every weapon in the youthful playwright’s comic arsenal – from excruciating cross-purposes to silly impersonations, drunkenness, bust-ups and pratfalls. It’s also his most joyful banquet of language, groaning with puns, rhymes, bizarre syntax, grotesque coinages and parody. This production employs Renaissance staging and costume. 

    “Sends its audience out in a mood of high exultation” –Observer

    “As dewy as a morning in May…this production lands every joke” --The New York Times

     

    “With a delightful design and jaunty music it has abundant charm… Entirely enchanting” -- The Times

     

    This five-act comedy will screen in high-definition Friday, October 1 at 7:30pm in the Long Center’s Dell Hall on the giant movie screen.
