How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Don't be confused, you are watching Romeo and Juliet using Shakespeare's script, albeit encased in a 1964 all-boys Catholic school. The acting is superb. Unless you read the playbill ahead of time, you may be confused as to why the school and the date are important. Once I did, it made sense. On the "meta" level of the play, I think it fell slightly short--it should have been more self-explanatory; however, these actors are brilliant!
