Love's Labour's Lost
Echoing the sentiments of the worlds greatest rock concert on its 50th anniversary, Thomas G. Waites transports the tenderness and philanthropy of LOVES LABOURS LOST to the era of enlightened love and transformative music. Presented with the generous support of The Jeff Hunter Charitable Trust, a cast brimming with emerging New York talent will bring the timeless verse of Shakespeare and enduring music of Woodstock to the Gene Frankel Theatre (24 Bond Street, between Lafayette and Bowery) for a limited engagement from October 3-26. Opening night is Sunday, October 6. Tickets, priced at $25 for general admission and $15 for students and seniors, are available online at https://loveslabourstgw.bpt.me/.

Conspicuously poetic and teeming with flirtatious word play, Shakespeares frolicking love story LOVES LABOURS LOST moves to the summer of Woodstock, celebrating the romance and togetherness inherent in both. Just as the King of Navarre and his three cohorts sequester themselves and swear off women with a three-year vow of chastity, four remarkably beautiful women arrive as emissaries from France to meet with the King. Their plan derailed from the start, the men decide that divinity is, in fact, only found in the eye of a woman and love the only worthy study of mankind. Interspersed with the hits of the era from The Doors, Jackson Browne, Jesse Colin Young, and moreperformed live by the castthis LOVES LABOURS LOST seamlessly blends Shakespeares immortal words with the unforgettable tunes that inspired a generation to live with love.

Oct. 3 - 26
The Gene Frankel Theatre | 24 Bond Street, NYC 10012

This production of LOVES LABOURS LOST carries on the legacy of Jeff Hunter, veteran agent and fierce advocate for undiscovered talent, who passed away in early 2018. The co-founder of Triad Artists and former Senior Vice President of Motion Picture Talent at William Morris Endeavor worked with an impressive roster of clients in both theatre and film during the span of his storied career, including Barbra Streisand, Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Lane, Patti LuPone, and Raul Esparza, among many others. He is credited with discovering top tier talent at the beginning of their career, including Kevin Kline, Raul Julia, Mandy Patinkin, and, perhaps most notably, Morgan Freeman, with whom he formed one of the longest running actor-agent relationships in the business at more than 40 years of representation. Through funding projects like LOVES LABOURS LOST, The Jeff Hunter Charitable Trust aims to provide performance opportunities for early career talent that act as a springboard for them to acquire representation and jump start their careers.

The cast of LOVES LABOURS LOST features Luis Guillen, Olivia Hardin, Brandon Hynum, Daniel Kornegay, Grace Langstaff, Joshua Lazarus, Robert Thorpe, Johnathan Mastrojohn, Melissa Molerio, Chandler Robyn, Will Rosenfelt, Josh Rubenstein, Annie Sizova, Steven Smith, and Julie Spina

LOVES LABOURS LOST is directed and adapted by Thomas G. Waites. Set design is by Tekla Monson; costume design is by Jason Vincent; lighting design is by Gilbert "Lucky" Pearto; and props design is by Thomas R. Gordon, also serving as Stage Manager.
