Couldn't we all enjoy a good laugh this summer? Well, Capital Classics is staging “Love's Labour's Lost," as part of the Greater Hartford Shakespeare Festival. Join us for three weekends (July 13–30, 2017), outdoors on the grounds of the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford.

In “Love’s Labour’s Lost,” Capital Classics will bring its spirited, raucous performance style to this rambunctious comedy of love, as a cast of characters stumble and bumble its way in pursuit of love with true Shakespearean silliness and joy.

July 13 – 30, 2017
Thursday – Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
Sundays at 5:30 p.m.

Audience members are encouraged to arrive to the Greater Hartford Shakespeare Festival at least 30 minutes early to enjoy pre-show entertainment. Bring your family and friends (and your picnic basket and beverages) for "Shakespeare under the stars. Be sure to visit CapitalClassics.org or HartfordShakespeare.org for the Festival calendar of events.
