After sending Shakespeare spinning in his grave for two sidesplitting summers with Hamlet! The Musical, Chicago Shakespeare Theater and Second City Theatricals reunite to present a hilarious spoof of Shakespeare's most famous love story starring Keegan-Michael Key and Nicole Parker of Fox's "MAD TV."
The Second City's Romeo and Juliet Musical: The People vs. Friar Laurence, the Man Who Killed Romeo and Juliet, a rowdy re-dux of Shakespeare's classic, lays the ultimate blame for Romeo and Juliet's fated demise at the feet of Friar Laurence. Grilled, Court-TV style by an aggressive attorney, the clergyman is forced to recount the entire tale of the fated pair in an effort to prove his innocence.
