Shakespeare in love

People's Light and Theatre Company, 2/26-3/29

The popular stage adaptation of the 1998 film.  Young Will Shakespeare is troubled with writer's block, until the comely Viola de Lesseps (incognito, in male drag) comes to audition for his company.  She becomes his muse, as they embark on a whirlwind affair, which inspires Shakespeare to write Romeo and Juliet.

Lawton plays Richard Burbage, owner of Shakespeare's rival company, the Curtain.

A Delicate Balance

Walnut St. Theatre Studio, 4/14-5/17

What would you do? On one previously uneventful night, long-time friends arrive at your door unannounced and terrified—unable to say what they are running from, or how long they plan to stay. An unexplained fear has gripped them, and they have turned to you as their first and last resort. What would you do? Edward Albee won the first of his three Pulitzer Prizes for this absorbing look into the everyday hopes, fears, and secrets we all so delicately balance. Directed by Walnut Producing Artistic Director Bernard Havard.
