Shakespeare in the Park: Love's Labour's Lost

The lost  Shakespeare classic as presented by The Venitian.

We'll be reviewing this show on it's opening weekend; Sat., July 26 to be exact (though it opens the Thur. preceding). Our review will appear here on Sun. July 27.

Note that the shows are in the park in Hillsboro, Oregon at the location below.

King Ferdinand and his three friends have devoted themselves to three years of uninterrupted study…and NO women will be allowed within a mile of their court to interfere with their academic pursuits—that is, until the Princess of France arrives with her entrancingly distracting entourage of gorgeous ladies-in-waiting!

Disguise, deception, mayhem, and romantic mischief abound as the heart proves stronger than the mind!

Love’s Labour’s Lost is an original adaptation of Shakespeare’s romantic classic by Scott Palmer, with a uniquely Italian-Frederico-Fellini feel, inspired by Fellini’s masterwork La Dolce Vita.

A light-hearted romantic romp, outdoors in the glorious surroundings of the Tom Hughes Civic Center Plaza—with stunning Italian-couture costumes by Melissa Heller and starring some of B&B’s most recognizable outdoor performers—riding in on Vespas!

Perduta di lavoro la dolce vita di amore!

Runs: July 24, 25, 26, 31, August 1, 2, 7, 8, and 9 – 2014
Time: 7:30 p.m.
Performance Location: The Tom Hughes Civic Center Plaza, 150 E Main Street, Hillsboro 97123
Tickets: $18

What Does AOL Stand For? New SWWASTAR Email.

It's not going to do me a whole lot of good to gripe here, but the fact is that our AOL email account is no longer accessible do to a computer glitch and some really poor help without viable solutions (like Yahoo and Google). Their customer service is a real stink hole!

So, we've had to change our contact information (and it's not with AOL). This is SUCH a hassle. Three years of contacts lost! Grumble, grumble. I hate you AOL!

Please make a note of this change. Our new email address is:
