Romeo and Juliet Act V, Scene 3

PRINCE
A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon’d, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.

    Funky and interesting interpretation of a classic.

  • Caitlyn Smith says:

    A very interesting and modern rendition of Romeo and Juliet…almost like West Side Story. I would particularly like to know what meaning the of the balloons are since Juliet (I am assuming) is always holding them.

    it’s very different. Had comic moments (audience laughing) and ending done a little differently than usual. Interesting nonetheless
    Tags: color red, balloons, hat, broom, dress, ‘tablecloth’,

  • William Garcia says:

    I like how the characters are one stage for the prologue, allowing the chorus to point out the characters and situations to the audience as they happen.

    Am I mistaken that this is an all-male cast? It does not affect the tone at all, but just impressive acting by the Juliet.

  • Nichole says:

    I like the use of color – Juliet’s white (wedding-like) dress and Romeo’s darker attire. The red balloons also beg attention. Very interesting interpretation.

  • Erica says:

    Even just in the opening scene, the set is a striking element. The split, raised platform in the back is a unique treatment of the set as well as serving almost as a symbol for the two fighting families.

  • Mehreen Arif says:

    A very modern and urbanized adaptation.
    The set is bold and striking, the use of props like graffiti, balloons, dresses is very different than the norm.

  • KB says:

    The set’s graffiti-like look sets this production firmly in an inner city. It has a gritty feeling, and darkens the play considerably. It really emphasizes the urban violence that surrounds the young couple.
