America's most acclaimed touring repertory theater, honored by the Tony Awards for Excellence in Theater, presents what is perhaps Shakespeare's greatest and certainly most recognized play, "Romeo and Juliet" at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 8 at Shawnee State University's Vern Riffe Center for the Arts.
Shakespeare's timeless and deeply moving tragedy exquisitely embodies the brief joy of youthful passion and ecstasy. The innocent lovers fall victim to family hatred and cruel destiny. Swords clash and a treacherous sleeping potion is swallowed in the greatest love story of all time.
Young love has never been so delightful or as dangerous as in this stirring new production.
