Yale Rep brings the epic passion of the most beautiful love poetry ever written to its stage for the first time.
Bounding between festive celebrations and bloody duels to the death, battles of wit and soaring romanticism, Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is the world’s greatest and most enduring love story. From their first shy glances to their last heartbreaking kiss, the star-crossed teenagers choose each other in spite of their feuding families’ ancient grudge, as their love races towards a final confrontation with fate.
This bold new production of Shakespeare’s timeless romance introduces Yale Rep audiences to director Shana Cooper, a co-founder of the New Theater House, whose work also includes productions at the Oregon, California, and Washington Shakespeare Festivals.
Please note: Romeo and Juliet is Yale Rep’s 2010-2011 WILL POWER! production which features early morning performances for middle and high school groups only. Currently all four 10:30am performances are sold out. For information about booking your school group to one of our evening or Saturday matinee performances, please contact Ruth M.
