THEATER ON FILM: “Love’s Labour’s Won” @ the Spectrum 8 Theatres, Albany. Autumn 1918. A group of soldiers return from the trenches. The world-weary Benedick and his friend Claudio find themselves reacquainted with Beatrice and Hero. As memories of conflict give way to a life of parties and masked balls, Claudio and Hero fall madly, deeply in love, while Benedick and Beatrice reignite their own altogether more combative courtship. Shakespeare’s comic romance plays out amidst the brittle high spirits of a post-war house party, as youthful passions run riot, lovers are deceived and happiness is threatened – before peace ultimately wins the day. Christopher Luscombe directs the second of Shakespeare’s matching pair… 7pm. $15; $12 children age 12 & under.
