April 4, 2014 - May 18, 2014
Directed by David O'Connor
Take the tempestuous journey of young love in
Shakespeare's classic tale of these star-crossed lovers. Follow Romeo and
Juliet, as they fall desperately in love and battle against the odds of their
constantly warring families and the inauthentic ideals of a mechanized society.
Their love becomes their completion, a victim of the society at large: their
love swells and withers, wields protection in a culture of knives and danger,
shock and desire. Watch as their love unravels the gears of their devastating
reality, and guides them to the authentic truth. Accompany these young lovers
from their first blissful kiss to their final parting words, as the
mechanizations of the outside world devour them.
What You Will Preview Performances
Join us to enjoy an unforgettable performance of Romeo and Juliet at the price of a
ticket that you choose! What’s the difference between a preview and a regular
performance? None! The only difference is technical, as the director is
still allowed to make suggestions to the actors.
To sign up for the preview performances, please click on the date you wish to
attend and you have the option to Pay What You Will online in
advance or at the door.
