Musical updating of romeo juliet
At the end of the play, despite his own admission of guilt for Romeo's and Juliet's death, Escalus, The Prince of Verona forgives him.The following events are just some of the events coming up this month.
Performance rights are now available for select musical theater and Shakespeare groups. Two families of Verona, the Montagues and the Capulets, have been feuding with each other for years.Young Romeo Montague goes out with his friends to make trouble at a party the Capulets are hosting, but while there he spies the Capulet's daughter Juliet, and falls hopelessly in love with her.Do you want dramatic bluster and fist waving (which Hamlet specifically cautions against) or true raw emotion and feeling?These actors, mostly because they were so inexperienced, couldn't be more natural and true to their characters every step of the way. The Friar and Nurse were obscenely perfect, becoming among the most endearing characters ever filmed, and of course John Mc Enery is the best, most pathos-laden Mercutio ever, all stage, screen, TV, etc. Michael York is a fabulous Tybalt, menacing, arrogant, headstrong, cruel, but ultimately sympathetic.It will run full without edits and will include an intermission.
A way to say thank you to our Pacific Northwest theatre friends that provided such tremendous support for this new production.
It feels more modern and current than the soulless bluster of Baz Luhrmann's effort.
Whosoever says Whiting and Hussey are anything short of fantastic as Romeo and Juliet needs to reconsider how they want Shakespeare acted.
You truly believe that they are in love and it's a legitimate love, no just "crazy teens." And the rest of the cast - Jesus H. Tybalt is after all just a petulant child - he's no evil tyrant, just a misguided bully, who certainly doesn't deserve to die.
I love that his killing of Mercutio is accidental and that he seems to show remorse for it.
