The Old Globe in San Diego, California, is just weeks away from kicking off its 2013-14 season with a production of The Last Goodbye, a new musical adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, featuring the music of late rock icon Jeff Buckley and directed by two-time Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher).

New York is already in the midst of its own Romeo and Juliet mania, with the beautiful Broadway pairing of Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad, as well as the adorable Elizabeth Olsen and the recently-announced Julian Cihi soon coming to Classic Stage Company. Check out the West Coast's contribution to this season of star-crossed lovers, with Broadway hunk Jay Armstrong Johnson (Hands on a Hardbody) as Romeo and the gorgeous Talisa Friedman as Juliet.

<i>The Last Goodbye</i> begins performances on September 22.
