Romeo and Juliet

by William Shakespeare

Never was a story of more woe, than that of Juliet and her Romeo. New Art Theatre’s Living Classics Series is proud to present William Shakespeare’s timeless and most enduring play, Romeo and Juliet. The two star-crossed lovers capture and portray the essence of our humanity found in no other tale. The play’s deeply moving poetry, moments of hilarity, and startling acts of fury, express the widest possible range of our emotional and physical landscape. Still as topical as it was 400 years ago, Romeo and Juliet reflects familiar themes about family, political unrest, good intentions gone wrong, and fear of the “other” that all too often leads to tragedy. And yet, in even the darkest times, as the play so beautifully illustrates, our human nature is still to seek love, redemption, and salvation.
