This is very well done--excellent acting and engaging. This was the complete Romeo & Juliet (as well as extras) so I was a bit surprised at that. Very good interpretation. Not for everyone, though, as it is the complete work and runs 2 3/4 hours.
Quotes & Highlights
- “Breath-stopping ... The inventiveness, the cleverness of the staging and the boundless energy of the cast keep us glued to our seats” — The Washington Post
- “Visual magic ... A bracing in-the-round production” — The Baltimore Sun
- “This is Shakespeare at its best: raw, athletic, passionate ... sexy” — Brightest Young Things
Four young men. One scarf. Shakespeare’s transcendent saga of forbidden love reimagined in a brave and bold in-the-round setting.
A repressive all-male Catholic boarding school bans Romeo and Juliet in favor of Latin conjugations and the Ten Commandments. Four students unearth a secret copy and steal into the night to recite the prohibited tale of adolescent passion. While it begins as a lark, the story gradually draws the boys into a discovery of universal truth that parallels their own coming-of-age. A riveting drama within a drama, Shakespeare’s R&J transcends the boundaries between play and player.
