  Love's Labour's Lost at The Frontier

Love's Labour's Lost

The Frontier
1106 W Thorndale Chicago

A well-intentioned king vows to forego all fleshly delights, setting the stage for romantic hijinks. Ferdinand, the king of Navarre, insists that his court join him in a pledge to undertake a strict regimen of study and celibacy. The grudging compliance of three noblemen is sorely tested - as is the king's own resolve - with the arrival of a French princess and a trio of comedy attendants. Love's Labour's Lost features such typical Shakespearean elements as lovers in disguise, a witty clown, and an abundance of sparkling repartee.

NewCity Chicago - Somewhat Recommended

"...Hidden somewhere beneath the bloated, dragging, dangerously-close-to-three-hour running time of Invictus Theatre Company’s “Love’s Labour’s Lost” is an enjoyable, jolly ninety or so minutes of hilarious, well-crafted Shakespearean storefront comedy, well-suited for a Chicago autumn evening. Instead, within the confines of a text in desperate need of lengthy cuts, we find ourselves left with trace examples of what can only be described as Shakespeare Gone Wrong."

"...If you are not necessarily a Shakespeare fan, be not afraid. Shakespeare intended this to be enjoyed by people of all ages, social classes and education levels. You could probably not speak English and still understand pretty much what’s going on."

"...As the show ends, Berowne turns to the audience. With a twinkle in his eye, he ends with the line "That's too long for a play." Shakespeare wrote an additional page and a half of dialogue after this line. Was Invictus Theatre's ending a nod to the audience? A clever thank you for our time? In the end, I enjoyed Invictus Theatre's production of Love's Labor Lost and encourage Shakespeare enthusiasts to find their way to the Frontier Theater for this lively show."
