Shakespeare in Love Staff Pick

When: Sundays, 2 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Sept. 15 2019
Price: $20-$40
Insight Theatre Company ends its season with Shakespeare in Love, Lee Hall's stage adaptation of the popular film of the same name. William Shakespeare is a struggling playwright hampered by writer's block. Maybe it's because there's no real inspiration behind his current work-in-progress, Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate's Daughter. He's besotted with the beautiful Rosalyn, who is currently involved with the powerful Master of the Revels. That's when he encounters Thomas Kent, a surprisingly attractive young actor. Thomas is really Viola, daughter of a noble family, a fact he soon discovers. Of course they fall in love, but she's already engaged to another man. Shakespeare's gonna have to really work to write his way out of this mess. Shakespeare in Love is performed at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday (August 29 to September 15) at the Grandel Theatre (3610 Grandel Square; Tickets are $20 to $40.
