Romeo & Juliet
Saratoga Shakespeare Company will be presenting a limited run of the Bard’s timeless tale of star crossed lovers in a uniquely theatrical way. In some of the most romantic language ever written for the stage, young Romeo and Juliet become fortune’s fools when the ancient grudge between their families forces them to sacrifice all for the chance to be together. Associate Artistic Director David Girard directs this classic tale of star-cross’d lovers caught between the world outside the bedroom window and passion as boundless as the sea. As played by a motley troupe of 9 actors, this fresh take on Romeo & Juliet will allow the actors to interact with the audience in a totally new way, take on more than one character and create multiple layers of interpretation. Director David Girard spins the text in a deliciously innovative way, redistributing lines and reinterpreting age old characters while never undermining the heart and history of the matter. The staging will be inventive and clever as the company will use Congress Park in unexpected ways. All ages are welcome.
Romeo & Juliet will be performed without an intermission
