After a thirty-year hiatus, this cheeky, time-bending musical is back. Sweet Will transforms the Bard’s most iconic plays and poetry into a new story, rife with song and sass that strikes a powerful synthesis between old and new.
In this exhilarating hodgepodge of legendary work, we see the true universality of Shakespeare’s writing, repackaged for modern viewers in a trendy Steampunk aesthetic. Themes of love, lust, fading youth and the masks we wear permeate the words and songs of this rousing musical escapade.

“A witty, moving and often surprising romp which sustains itself from beginning to end, and, when it stops, leaves a sense of electricity still shimmering in the room.”

~The New York Times, 1985
