Glendale’s Brelby Theatre Company just won’t stop doing the Shakespeare. The young and frisky troupe focuses on the part of the canon that features young and frisky characters, and so far, so good. This time around, it’s Love’s Labour’s Lost, given a silent film/speakeasy kind of feel and a couple of extra chicks in the fun roles of chaperone Boyet and snotty scholar Holofernes. The plot concerns a well-meaning, studly king who has his bros join him in pledging -- no, no, not a frat. The pledge is to maintain good study habits and stay away from the distractions of womankind. But a French princess and her retinue show up and hey, you have to be good hosts, right?
