Two households both alike in dignity
In an '80s high school where we lay our scene
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
This iconic tragedy gets a contemporary shake up in The Underlings Theatre Co.'s production of Romeo & Juliet. Drawing inspiration from cult classics as Heathers and The Virgin Suicides, director Lelaina Vogel explores the passion and youth of these well-known characters as they experience the most fraught of contemporary times: high school. With voice and text coaching by Daniel Thomas Blackwell, this production will blend old and new by recreating the dialect of Elizabethan England with the sensibilities of the twenty-first century in the style of the nineteen-eighties.
