About this show

Shakespeare's ill-fated tale of two star-crossed lovers takes a new spin with a transgendered young man as the female ingenue. With the bitter passing of Proposition 8, this adaptation couldn't be more timely and expressive, portraying an enduring love story maligned by Fate. You may think you know this classic tragic story about forbidden love, but you've never seen it like this before. Boy meets boy. Boy thinks boy is a girl. Boy falls in love, even after finding out "she" is a "he" ~ Your typical love story. His heart remains true and the two battle to stay together in a society that wants to keep them apart. Can they prevail? The rest, you know, is tragic history. Boxcar Theatre re-imagines the familiar, turning theatre on its head by offering a never before seen slant on one of the Bard's most famous plays. Sure to make heads spin and outrage a few more, this sensual and controversial play runs for three weeks only!
