Houston Shakespeare Festival

The annual Bard fest takes on Romeo and Juliet and Love’s Labour’s Lost

As producers of teen sex comedies and FOX network sitcoms know, nothing’s more entertaining than a guy who can’t keep it in his pants. William Shakespeare, just as much a crowd-friendly entertainer as a brilliant wordsmith, realized this and created several plays around the predicament, two of which are being performed at UH’s 33rd annual Houston Shakespeare Festival. The ever-popular Romeo and Juliet is, of course, the story of a kid who enflamed an age-old family feud in order to get a girl. Love’s Labour’s Lost portrays a king and three companions who swear to forsake the flesh and take up a life of study but find themselves slipping when a quartet of lovesick ladies camp out near the kingdom. (This had to be every Elizabethan lad’s fantasy.)
