About This Show

New Perspectives Theatre Company presents Romeo & Juliet, directed by NPT Artistic Director Melody Brooks. The production examines the underlying brutality of the world in which the star-crossed lovers seek happiness. The production plays out against the historical backdrop of medieval Verona, circa 1300–a savage and violent place, busy with the building of dynasties and establishing the veneration of aristocratic bloodlines. The sons of the wealthy are not to be denied, daughters are bartered to strengthen their family?s position. Against this backdrop, a young couple in the throes of adolescent lust–one unsupervised and the other unloved–seek solace in each other?s arms from the cruel adult world. Erwin Falcon and DeAnna Gonzales star in the title roles.
