Shakespeare meets steampunk as Magenta Theater Company sets Romeo & Juliet in a world inspired by Victorian technology. Gears grind and stars cross in this classic tragedy of two young lovers separated by a bitter feud between their families. When an intricate plan to unite the two goes disastrously awry, the results are as memorable as they are deeply moving. Extravagantly ornamented but precisely engineered, Shakespeare's language is the perfect complement to steampunk's richly visual style in this adaptation from director David Roberts. Learn More

Had never been to the Magenta Theater before. It was "cozy." Seats relatively comfortable. The usher couldn't figure out the seating chart, so sent people to the wrong seats. Some people had paid a bit more for center seats, but the section wasn't full, so the ushers let people who had not paid the upgrade sit in the front row, center.
Cast was good, though their accents failed a bit in the last scene. It was a fun play, and there were some moving moments, as well as lots of hilarity. Set was good, costumes appropriate. Kind of a "folksy, small-town" experience compared to Portland's overpriced venues. Overall, a nice community theatre experience. I'll try some of their other offerings.
