Smart Bets: Love’s Labour’s Lost

Shakespeare's play, Love's Labour's Lost, was first published in 1598. It's about the King of Navarre and his three friends who vow to give up women in order to pursue their studies. But when the princess and her three ladies show up, the best laid plans go comically awry. Montford Park Players has reinterpreted the play in the style of a John Hughs' rom-com, set in a 1980s high school where "a group of students sworn to studious celibacy all fall comically in love with three beautiful French foreign exchange students." Love’s Labour’s Lost runs through Sunday, Aug. 18. Fridays-Sundays,7:30 p.m. at the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre. Free (donations accepted).
