NYU Tisch Students Perform Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost Al Fresco, April 12 and 13

March 26, 2014
N-269

Poetry, love, and academics are all lampooned in Shakespeare’s wittiest, wordiest play, Love’s Labour’s Lost. On April 12 and 13, Shakespeare in the Square, a student group at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, will bring the Court of Navarre to Washington Square.

Shakespeare in the Square will run four performances of Love’s Labour’s Lost rain or shine, at NYU Stern’s Gould Plaza at 44 West 4th Street on Saturday, April 12 at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. and on Sunday, April 13 at 1p.m. and 4 p. m. Performances are free and open to the public. Run time is approximately two hours.

“For many people in the company, myself included, this is their final show as students," said Dan Hasse, artistic director and co-founder of Shakespeare in the Square. Love’s Labour’s Lost, a play about school and the bittersweet pain of saying goodbye, “seemed like the perfect farewell to NYU and to Shakespeare in the Square.”

Love’s Labour’s Lost is produced and performed entirely by NYU undergraduate students. The production team comprises:

  • Co-Directors: Rose Bochner and Dan Hasse
  • Co-Producers: Amber Como and Chris Corbo
  • Costume Designer: Liz McGlone
  • Assistant Director: Chris Corbo
  • Stage Manager: Amber Como
  • Properties Master: Spencer Kennard
  • Music Director: Chris Dubrow

Cast members include: Dylan Arredondo, Chris Dooly, Flora Greeson, Duncan Gregory, Dan Hasse, Chris Kappel, Constantine Malahias, Malena Pennycook, Susannah Perkins, Caleb Shomaker, Austin Short, Alex Slama, James Swanson, Patrick Sweeney, Lelia Symington, and Noam Tomaschoff.

Washington Square is easily accessible by subway: A,B,C,D,E,F,M to W. 4th St. Seating is not provided.

About Shakespeare in the Square
Shakespeare in the Square was co-founded in November 2010 by Hasse and Bochner, the executive director. The then freshmen set out to provide an opportunity to watch and perform Shakespeare's work as it was intended—“under the sun and in front of a loud, standing, possibly distracted audience.” For more information, visit www.shakespeareinthesquare.com.
