Romeo & Juliet
Directed by Don Wadsworth, Romeo & Juliet, William Shakespeare's most-beloved romantic tragedy, comes to life in a brutally modern American setting amidst civil unrest and street brawls. Despite the violence, two star-crossed lovers find sanctuary in each other's embrace but the fury of their love is no match for the fury of an ancient feud. Romeo & Juliet is one of the most timeless stories of love, loyalty and sensuality.
