“I just want to thank you immensely for sending the team of professional actors. They were awesome! My students were enraptured during the performance. For most of them it was their first Shakespeare production. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with you in the future. Thanks for considering us!”
A Free Virtual Production for the City of New York
Love’s Labours Lost by William Shakespeare
Directed by Kern McFadden
The Company Tour is a free, 60-minute, bare-bones touring production of a classical play with a focus on performing for under-served communities. Since 2013, the Company Tour has reached over 7,000 New Yorkers and collaborated with over 50 community organizations including schools, community, cultural, rehabilitation and senior centers in all five boroughs. Through post-show community discussions, performers and audience have an opportunity to connect. Now, since the pandemic has limited our ability to travel and connect in-person, the tour is available virtually.
The following are offered to community partners for free:
- A pre-recorded 60 minute version of “Love’s Labour’s Lost”. Click here to stream the performance.
- A synchronous Q&A which can take place via Zoom. Click here to contact Libby J’Vera to schedule a live Zoom talkback with your group. Click here for a pre-recorded talkback.
- A synchronous theater workshop for your community. This is a first come, first served opportunity with limited availability. Click here to contact Libby J’Vera to discuss scheduling.

If you use any of these resources, please take a moment to give us your feedback so we can continue to provide free theater for the community.
