Romeo and Juliet Broadway Play Synopsis:
Romeo and Juliet is a retelling of Shakespeare’s most famous love tragedy. It is a tale of passion, prejudice, jealousy and betrayal. The play is told in original dialogue from the text but in a different setting. Star-crossed lovers Juliet Capulet and Romeo Montague are an interracial couple in modern-day Verona, Italy. The Capulets and Montagues are both well-established families in the city of Verona. But the two houses are also bitter enemies. Racial contrast has fueled a violent, longstanding rivalry between them. Although they come from different worlds, Romeo and Juliet meet and fall in love. They attempt to overcome their families’ feuding past and resolve to marry in secret. Their inability to openly declare their love results in a tragic sequence of events, including the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. The strength of their love ultimately causes their families to reconcile.
