RomeoJulietThe Globe Theatre describes this production of English playwright William Shakespeare’s famous romantic tragedy as an “interpretation”.

I don’t have any details yet on what form that interpretation will take, although there’s certainly been no shortage of adaptations that have been done over the years that have been set in different time periods and involved different set-ups for the rival Montague and Capulet clans

This Globe version of Romeo and JulietĀ is being directed by Anita Rochon, and as it happens, the play’s run coincides with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death which occurred on April 23, 1616.

Romeo & Juliet opens tonight at the Globe Theatre, and continues until May 1. For ticket information you can visit the Globe Theatre website.
