Who Won the Valentine’s Day Ticket Giveaway?

Who won the Valentine’s Day ticket giveaway to Love’s Labour’s Lost?  Well, we had over 35 entries through comments on the site, by phone, and by email.  A thank you everyone for your patience when the website was acting a little wonky and not letting folks post comments.  We tried to get it fixed as soon as possible. We randomly chose a winner from the correct entries, and the winner is…

Carlos Williams!

He correctly identified that St. Valentine’s Day is mentioned in Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  Also, his favorite Shakespeare quote about love is from The Merchant of Venice (Act 3, Scene 2)

“How all the other passions fleet to air,
As doubtful thoughts, and rash-embrac’d despair,
And shudd’ring fear, and green-eyed jealousy!
O love, be moderate, allay thy ecstasy,
In measure rain thy joy, scant this excess!”


We’ll have more giveaways in the future, so be sure to check back.
