Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet
January 09 - January 31, 2010
McGuire Proscenium Stage

On the heels of last year's co-production of Henry V, The Acting Company and the Guthrie partner for a second year to present a national tour of Shakespeare's iconic romance. When Romeo Montague is struck by the sight of young Juliet Capulet at a dance, he determines to pursue her despite the feud between their two prominent families. Swords clash, everlasting love is promised and a treacherous sleeping potion is swallowed in the greatest love story of all time. By turns delightful and dangerous, Romeo and Juliet perfectly embodies the passion of youth.
