About This Show

With Romeo and Juliet, The Wheelhouse Theater Company sets out to break with cliche in tackling Shakespeare’s most iconic love story, mining the polarities of comedy and tragedy, love and hate, through playful, ensemble-driven work which lies at the heart of the Wheelhouse approach to theater. Recognizing that the latter half of the play mirrors the first, the company builds up a great height of comedic joy from which to fall into the depths of tragedy … a tragedy which proves to be the only possible antidote to breaking the cycle of conflict embedded in a divided status quo that feels eerily familiar to our current cultural climate.
