American Shakespeare Center
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

$20; Five College/GCC/STCC students and Youth 17 and under: $10
Dance, athleticism, and swordplay share the stage with sonnets, bawdy wit, and soul-searching speeches in this profoundly human and always surprising masterpiece. The American Shakespeare Center recovers the joys and accessibility of Shakespeare's theatre and gives its audiences some of the pleasures that an Elizabethan playgoer would have enjoyed: universal lighting, doubling of parts, fun with gender confusion, minimal sets, familiar costumes, and the use of music throughout.
Co-presented with the Massachusetts Center for Renaissance Studies.
