Play trailers: Love's Labours Lost at Georgia Shakespeare

Posted By on Thu, Jun 24, 2010 at 11:43 AM

Most on-line trailers from live theater involve documentary-style backstage chat or rehearsal performances. (Let's not even think about those cheap-o commercials that simply pan across the poster while music plays on the soundtrack.) Georgia Shakespeare has posted this adorable trailer for Love's Labour's Lost, which is essentially a short, silent film that captures the play's bittersweet vibe and the premise of a group of gentlemen distracted from intellectual pursuits by romance. It actually feels more effortles than Kenneth Branagh's musical version of the play. Directed by Jan Akers, Love's Labour's Lost opens Friday, June 25.
