Shakespeare in Love

2hrs 3mins
Directed by
John Madden
Joseph Fiennes, Gwyneth Paltrow, Geoffrey Rush

Featuring a post-screening conversation with guests from the Huntington Theatre Company's production of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead.

Tom Stoppard penned the screenplay for this triumphant smash hit with Marc Norman, winning them both Academy Awards, along with six others for the film including Best Picture. When Will Shakespeare needs passionate inspiration to break a bad case of writer's block, a secret romance with the beautiful Lady Viola (Gwyneth Paltrow) starts the words flowing like never before. There are just two things he'll have to learn about his new love: not only is she promised to marry someone else, but she's successfully impersonating a man in order to play the lead in Will's latest production!

Please visit for tickets and/or more information about the Huntington Theatre Company’s production of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, which runs September 20 through October 20, 2019.
