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_ ":http://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/theater_dance/shakespeares-rj-at-signature-theatre-an-old-heartache-gets-an-electric-jolt/2013/02/13/c7d8281c-7620-11e2-9889-60bfcbb02149_story.html
“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.
