Arranged by Clinton A. Johnston and Leslie M. Scott-Jones, this collection of scenes from multiple Shakespeare plays, concentrates on all the different facets and behaviors of love. With African-American music, poetry, and dance weaved throughout, this piece showcases Shakespeare’s universal understanding of the human condition and one of our favorite things to talk about…love.

Performances of the Love’s the Thang  will take place at
the Belmont Arts Collaborative (221 Carlton Road, Suite 3, Charlottesville VA 22902)
