WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE ROMEO AND JULIET
"Two households both alike in dignity in fair Verona where we lay our scene...."
Metta staged William Shakespeare’s romantic play, “Romeo and Juliet.” The play tells the story of the two star crossed lovers in the fair city of Verona---home of the two feuding houses, the Capulets and the Montagues. The long feud between those two houses cause tragic results for Romeo and Juliet's romance. The audience witnessed the journey of the two conflicting families, fight against prejudice, and search for eternal love.
The audience also experienced “Theater of Awakening” in a two-hour production of Shakespeare's original text for modern audience with gender-bending casting, physical theater, ensemble work, stage combat, live band, dance and audience participation.
