About This Show

Hailed by the Wall Street Journal as “the most inventive re-imagining of a classic in years,” Shakespeare’s R & J received a Lucille Lortel Award in 1998. It combines four male actors, an empty space, and the greatest romance in the English language to uncover the danger, terror, and eroticism of Shakespeare’s original love story Romeo & Juliet. Set in a contemporary all-boys’ prep school, the stripped-down adaptation explores masculinity, sexuality, and the coming-of-age process.
