The terribly talented twosome behind the incredibly irreverent Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
, Alex Timber and Michael Friedman, are at it again. This time, they're putting a fresh spin on another dead white guy -- William Shakespeare. They've edited his original Love's Labour's Lost
text and added pop-musical numbers, and set the whole thing in a modern-day boozy post-collegiate resort limbo (you can also check out an interview we did with the show's star, Daniel Breaker, HERE
). Is this remix of the Bard as good as the original, or did they Labour too hard and Lose the Love?Love's Labour's Lost is open now at Central Park's Delacorte Theater through August 18th.
