The Deal

Romeo and Juliet

See how she leans her cheek upon her hand!
O that I were a glove upon that hand,
That I might touch that cheek!

Boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, boy and girl defy their families to be together: it’s not an unfamiliar story. What sets Romeo & Juliet apart is what happens next. It’s an ending that defies spoiler warnings—Sergei Prokofiev, Leonardo DiCaprio, and high-school literature teachers everywhere have made the finale famous—but knowing what’s coming doesn’t make it any less devastating. The double-suicide, brought about by bad luck, worse timing, and some faulty communication, becomes all the more tragic when you consider their ages: Juliet is just under 14, Romeo not much older.

That heartbreak, and the lush language that precedes it, is exactly what makes the play so unforgettable—but its countless adaptations haven’t hurt. In Classical Theatre Project’s take, there’s certainly a reverence for the source material, but also a brash redefinition of it. Here, a modern Juliet is the center of the story, and her spoken memories and musings drive the plot. But she’s not the only modernized aspect of the show. Loud music and a mishmash of Elizabethan and contemporary costumes join an innovative lighting scheme wherein characters highlight themselves and shift into focus with the use of handheld flashlights. The result: a thought-provoking twist on a classic that explores the concepts of free will and fate.

Classical Theatre Project

Countless theatre troupes perform Shakespeare plays. Very few have presented them to over a million audience members across North America. At Classical Theatre Project, the ensemble strives to make classic work appealing and relevant to a new generation of audiences and pop culture. Whether they’re mounting a traditional Elizabethan production or infusing new life into a script with unconventional concepts and spilled baby food on the pages, the company takes pride in getting young people excited about live theatre.
