A stirring love story.  Terrific jokes.  A joyous celebration of theatre itself.
 At a time when so many stage shows are based on films, it is odd that it has taken so long for Shakespeare in Love to arrive in the West End, but boy has Lee Hall’s delightful adaptation been well worth the wait.
Funny.  Moving.  TERRIFIC’
A joyous stage adaptation.
Makes you feel grateful to be alive.’
