The most famous love story of all time gets a modern-day makeover courtesy of Collide Theatrical Dance Company. Set in the year 2000, in the borough of Brooklyn, the star-crossed love affair of young Romeo and Juliet unfolds amidst the barbarous world of New York City politics, where a blood feud between the Montague and Capulet families has been waged for generations. This telling of Romeo & Juliet may indeed utilize Shakespeare's original text to tell its story, but with a production that features 10 professional dancers, two vocalists and a violin quartet playing popular hits from artists like Lady Gaga, U2 and Michael Jackson, this performance is far from ordinary.
