Romeo and Juliet
Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.<p>
So opens Romeo and Juliet, perhaps Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy and a timeless warning to grudge-bearing elders and impetuous youth alike. The Capulets and the Montagues have been battling for generations, but a chance encounter and instant connection between their scions, Romeo and Juliet, leads to reconciliation under the most tragic circumstances possible. After the famous balcony scene, an unforgettable vignette that descends into an argument about the meaning of the word “wherefore,” the lovers struggle against the fate their families have drawn for them, only to fall victim to their adolescent temerity. An immortal tale that takes on more dimensions with every new adaptation, Romeo and Juliet has inspired countless stories of star-crossed lovers, from West Side Story to High School Musical.<p>
Tennessee Shakespeare Company
Theater should inspire wonderment. That’s the view at Tennessee Shakespeare Company, an artistic organization dedicated to bringing new life to William Shakespeare’s words. Each of its productions aims to burrow beneath the play’s familiar surface, finding deeper explorations into psychology, government, and philosophy. This approach brings new life to the timeless works—TSC’s Macbeth, for instance, highlighted the civilian cost of civil war, while an all-female Julius Caesar embodied “a bold new way to look at honor, womanhood, and power,” according to The Commercial Appeal. That same sense of exploration is extended to contemporary pieces.
