Romeo and Juliet
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. Plenty of film versions—from Franco Zeffirelli’s 1968 take to Baz Luhrmann’s DiCaprio- and Danes-fronted version—have used Shakespeare’s language, but looser adaptations are just as prominent. Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story, for instance, has become one of the world’s most enduring musicals, and the big screen has seen even more unconventional takes such as Gnomeo and Juliet and Underworld.

About The Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric
The Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric has a deep history that stretches back to the 1890s, when frequent polkas filled the air on summer evenings and the walls were decked out in beer-garden fashion. Throughout the following century, acts ranging from demonstrations of electric cooking to performances by Ella Fitzgerald and Robin Williams have inspired awe and given cause for recent restoration.
