Show Synopsis and Our Production

In William Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy, the inspired playwright creates a violent world in which two young people fall in love. Their families do not merely disapprove; the Montagues and the Capulets are engaged in a blood feud that makes this union treacherous. The pair of star-crossed lovers are doomed from their love-at-first-sight meeting, to their final devastating union. Despite the death-filled setting, this tale of woe has become one of the greatest love stories of all time. Its exquisite language, enduring themes, compelling characters and raw emotion make it easy for audiences to fall into the world of these young lovers even as they meet their untimely fate. It is the play that gave us the lines, “Parting is such sweet sorrow,” and “My only love sprung from my only hate!” Young performing artist and Korda player Jeremy Burke directs the tale, fresh off a season of compelling performances that included his Spring Awakening haunting portrayal of another youth caught in a web of inner turmoil and at odds with the world around him. Of Romeo & Juliet, Burke says, “In Shakespeare’s most (in)famous tale of star-crossed lovers, young love blooms through the cracks of a generational feud. It is not Romeo or Juliet’s war to fight. They were forced into the feud by an older generation. Now their own young love and recklessness is their only hope against it.”
