Romeo and Juliet


The most famous love story in the world and one of Shakespeare’s early poetic masterworks, Romeo & Juliet follows two star-crossed lovers from love at first sight to eternal life hereafter. Caught tragically between two feuding families, alike in dignity and in enmity, Shakespeare’s immortal young lovers try to fashion a new world amid the violence of the old, but cataclysmic choices and tragic twists propel them toward a final confrontation with fate.

After helming the highly-lauded productions of Kiss Me, Kate and Man of La Mancha, Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul directs his first Shakespeare production at STC—what is sure to be a spectacular, contemporary and heart-rending vision.
