BroadwayWorld / Shakespeare in LA
SPARKLE[S] WITH FRESH DELIGHT… masterfully told…  connects on a visceral level … a thought-provoking reinvention of Shakespeare’s classic that should be at the top of your destination list this summer” —Ellen Dostal, BroadwayWorld & Shakespeare in LA

“The setting puts ‘Romeo and Juliet’ in a situation that is easily understood by the modern mind… presented on the Theatricum’s gorgeous stage, between greenery, trees, birds …make it a complete outing by taking a picnic.” —  Dena Burroughs, Examiner

Theatre Notes
“This R & J is fresh and vibrant. The old story loses none of its power and, indeed, gains a more immediate relevance. I loved it.” — Paul Myrvold, Theatre Notes

Topanga Messenger
FRESH AND AUTHENTIC… The first act is often funny and ribald, just barely setting us up for the tragic ending… reminds us that prejudice and hatred continue to be prevalent forces in the world.” — Justin Biel, Topanga Messenger
