Philip Cumbus is the King of Navarre and Michelle Terry is the Princess of France in this performance of Love's Labour's Lost at Shakespeare's Globe, London's faithful reconstruction of the open-air playhouse designed in 1599. True to the play's original Renaissance staging and costume, this production is a festive parade of every weapon in the youthful Shakespeare's comic arsenal—excruciating cross-purposes, silly impersonations, drunkenness, bust-ups, and pratfalls—and a joyful banquet of language, groaning with puns, rhymes, bizarre syntax, grotesque coinages, and parody. Directed by Dominic Dromgoole.
