'Jaunty jazz age production' WhatsOnStage

 

“If music be the food of love…”

Reimagined in the 1920s where prohibition is rife and Europe is still reeling in the wake of war, this brand new production bursts to life. Fuelled by a scintillating selection of energetic jazz music, an outstanding ensemble of actors creates a dizzying and beautiful version of Shakespeare’s perfect play. The radical spirit of Duke Ellington, Django Reinhardt, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong is fused with an innovative approach to staging and actor-musicianship to tell this timeless story of mistaken identities, seduction and transformation, balancing comedy, romance and tragedy in equal measure.

The Watermill Theatre has become known around the world for its bold, ensemble driven approach to presenting Shakespeare. Previous productions have toured internationally and to London’s West End
