TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: Shakespeare's "Love's Labour's Lost" Concludes Marin Shakespeare Company's 28th Season

Sep 11, 2017
by Evan Almdale
Shakespeare’s rarely seen ‘Love’s Labour’s Lost’ concludes the Marin Shakespeare Company’s 28th season. And what a fine season-ender it was! A warm summer night, a glass of wine, and soaking in the Bard’s brilliant wordplay and timeless love story combined to create a magical night of theater.

Set in Oxford at the end of the 19th century, the play follows the King of Navarre and his 3 friends as they pledge to give up the pursuit of love in favor of their academic studies. Naturally much fun and folly ensues.

This production is directed the British Shakespeare scholar Rob Clare. Led by the 2 principle players Dean Linnard as the King and Livia DiMarchi as Princess Katharine, the entire cast gave stellar performances.

The outdoor amphitheatre opens one hour prior to the show time for picnicking. Audiences are encouraged to bring picnics or purchase snacks at the Theater Café. In the event that the September temperatures fall back to normal, warm clothing and jackets are recommended for evening performances. Oh and bring or rent a stadium cushion, those wooden seats are hard! Parking is free.

Dates: The performance runs through September 24. Find specific performance dates and times at www.marinshakespeare.org

Location: Forest Meadows Amphitheatre, 890 Belle Avenue, Dominican University of California, San Rafael

Phone: 415.499.4488

Run time: Over 2 hours with one intermission

Tickets $10 to $37. Please visit the website for additional ticket pricing.
