“For where is any author in the world teaches such beauty as a woman’s eye?”

Start your summer with a frothy, funny celebration of love and learning. In the bucolic Kingdom of Navarre, four attractive young men make a pact to swear off romance and focus on academia … just minutes before the four loves of their lives wander by. Shakespeare’s side-splitting comedy about the struggle to balance heart and head is the perfect ode to CSF’s academic surroundings.
