Love's Labour's Lost (The First Quarto)
When the King of Navarre and his friends swore to devote themselves to a monastic life of scholarship, they forgot the embassy of the Princess of France would force them all to break their vows. Confronted with ladies who can match their wit, the lords learn the hard way that the heart wants what it wants.

Shakespeare's classic comedy of love's triumph is rarely performed in its earliest printed version; and Bad Quarto Productions will present the play using its signature style of combining modern text work with Shakespeare's staging conditions. Bad Quarto Productions' performances combine detailed understanding of Elizabethan language with the liveliness of improv to deliver productions of Shakespearean plays as intensely raw as their original stagings. Bad Quarto Productions combines universal lighting, cross-gender casting, audience interaction, live acoustic music, minimal scenery, and contemporary costumes to bring both this Renaissance play, and the Renaissance play-going experience to the modern stage this August in New York City.

The house opens 20 minutes before curtain times. Love's Labour's Lost is approximately 100 minutes long, and will be performed without an intermission. Bad Quarto invites all audience members to come early and enjoy live acoustic music performed by the cast prior to each performance.

Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets at http://loveslabours.bpt.me/. For more information please visit Bad Quarto Productions online at http://www.BadQuarto.org. Questions may be directed to info@badquarto.org, or by phone at (646) 598-2128 between 10 AM and 6 PM.

Love's Labour's Lost will be directed by Bad Quarto Productions' Artistic Associate Alex Dabertin, who has previously directed What, Lamb! What, Ladybird! and assistant-directed The Life and Death of Jack Straw for the company in 2016, as well as appearing on stage in their productions of The Taming of a Shrew, Hamlet: The First Quarto, and their recent production of Cupid's Revenge.

Of Love's Labour's Lost, Dabertin says "This play is one of Shakespeare's great early comedies. Four young men who believe they can shape the the world into their mold are confronted by four young women who bring the world to their door and shatter that illusion. Love's Labour's Lost is full of wit, wisdom, and whimsy, and about the promises we make to those we hold most dear: in particular the promise of saying 'I love you.' "

About Bad Quarto Productions: Bad Quarto Productions was founded in 2010 to explore the rarely performed plays of Shakespeare's time, and the ways in which Shakespeare's staging techniques can inform modern theatrical productions. The company has produced the earliest printed version of Romeo and Juliet and The Taming of a Shrew ("a shrew" not "the shrew"); the first performance of The Merry Devil of Edmonton in the modern era; and The Ballad of Dido, an original musical developed using Shakespearean techniques. Bad Quarto Productions continues to look for new ways of bridging the gap between Shakespeare's theatre and the modern stage.
