Description

Shipley envisioned _StarCrossed _as a hot-blooded and wildly romantic perspective on the ancient feud. With bawdy humor and extraordinary consequences, the play relates the adventures of the libertine DiSenna and his incestuous passion for his twin sister, Catherine. When Catherine is seduced by the thief, Capulet, lives hang in the balance as love, fortune, and honor are risked on the turn of a card, the edge of a sword. A tale of friendships gone awry and unforgivable acts committed in the name of love.

StarCrossed has been making its way across the county with productions in 2005 in San Francisco at the Phoenix Theatre and Sea Coast Repertory Theater in Portsmouth, N.H. Shipley, who studied under William Gibson (Miracle Worker), has written more than 20 plays that have been performed internationally. Shipley is the recipient of the Drama-logue “Play of the Year” Award for the comedy Caryatids and was a nominee for an NAACP Image Award for Writing in Television. Shipley holds an MFA from Brandies University.

The LA premiere of StarCrossed is directed by Tony Caballero and the cast features Murielle Zuker, Karine Chakarian, Andrea Pandzades, Elizabeth Amman, James Harvey Ward, Patrick Cavanaugh, Ian Carroll, and Rocky Bajwa. The show is produced by James Carey.
