“Love’s Labour’s Lost”: My FT Review

The Financial Times has published my review of “Love’s Labour’s Lost,” a modern musical version of the Shakespeare play at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Bottom line: “Alex Timbers, who has adapted and directed, has jettisoned most of the text. Michael Friedman, who wrote the songs, has contributed less a coherent score than a series of ballads and ditties and showpieces drawing on everything from 1960s doo-wop to 1980s girl groups to 1990s boy bands.”
