It’s hot this week. Go inside and get some culture and drink some damn cold coffee.

Cincinnati Actor’s Studio & Academy (CASA) presents Love’s Labour’s Lost, a musical adventure based on the Shakespeare play, set in post-WWII Europe, and featuring the music of Cole Porter and George Gershwin. Wha? There’s method in this mad mashup that hits the black box stage at Essex Studios July 21-23 at 7:30 p.m. CASA student performances may be low-fi, but they’re hi-fun.
