The world’s greatest and most enduring love story, Romeo and Juliet follows its star-crossed lovers as they hurtle from their first shy glances to their last heartrending kiss. Caught between their feuding families, Romeo and Juliet desperately struggle to build a world insulated from the violence, but their love races toward a final confrontation with fate. Inspired by the Elizabethan tradition of all-male casts, Associate Artistic Director David Muse stages this poetic masterwork as Shakespeare would have, with men playing all of the roles. Muse has been praised for his “wonderfully sensitive guidance” creating productions that are “triumphant … glorious” (Washington City Paper).
