Enchantment abounds as Marin Theatre Company's 2017/2018 season continues with the Bay Area Premiere of Marc Norman, Tom Stoppard & Lee Hall’s effervescent romance, Shakespeare in Love. In the Elizabethan era, when women are forbidden to become actors, what’s a stage-struck lady to do? Lady Viola de Lesseps adores plays, especially those by a young writer named Will Shakespeare, but can only look on longingly as men and boys perform them. Will, meanwhile, has his own struggles: his inspiration fled, his debts and unwritten commissions piling up…until he meets an unknown young player named Thomas Kent, who speaks his words as he’s always dreamed they’d be spoken, and a beautiful woman named Viola, who could be just the muse he needs. Under the direction of MTC artistic director Jasson Minadakis, this stage adaptation of the beloved film finds its true essence: a love letter to the power of theatre and the imagination.
