About this show

A musical adaptation of the famous "Balcony Scene" from Romeo & Juliet, Such Sweet Sorrow is the name of our fictitious singing competition show, à la The Voice or American Idol, with the teenage contestants up for the roles of Romeo and Juliet, who will star in the upcoming Broadway smash hit, Romeo and Juliet Rocks!, a rock-pop opera. The contestants "battle-sing" each other using the verbatim Shakespeare words from start to end, taking turns getting eliminated until the final Romeo & Juliet is revealed. Then we get a sneak peak into what the real Broadway production would look like, complete with opening prologue "Two Households, both alike in dignity..." There's even a [few] budding on-set romances.
