'Where art thou Romeo?' Well, Juliet, last time I saw him, he was on the 94th floor of the Hancock....
Shattered Globe Theatre presents Down & Dirty Romeo & Juliet. Shakespeare's greatest love story ever told is being told in various locales around the city. The Montagues and Capulets hate each other. Their family feud is the town's gang problem. For fun, the Montagues crash the Capulets' house party. It's just a silly prank until Romeo falls hard for the host's daughter. But he's not alone in enemy territory, Juliet is equally smitten. Their forbidden love unites them in fatal ecstasy. The story is familiar. The surroundings may not be. Shattered Globe takes Shakespeare's 'all the world's a stage' to heart and hits the road. Down & Dirty Romeo & Juliet is a classic to go!
