Shakespeare's intriguing life and death is highlighted by his scandalous love for a "dark lady" and a "man right fair". The listener is transported back to Elizabethan England, where the musical is centered on London's colorful world of street markets, taverns, and the royal palaces of Queen Elizabeth I and King James I, with a dramatic climax at the fiery destruction of Shakespeare's beloved Globe Theatre.
Mansell's sparkling songs, romantic music, and clever dialogue (incorporating actual phrases from Shakespeare's works), brings refreshing life to the Bard's story.
