About the show

A perverse Jacobean romantic tragedy about love, lust, incest and hypocrisy. More…

What if Romeo and Juliet were brother and sister? Siblings Annabella and Giovanni fall into an incestuous affair with a brutal velocity that sets Renaissance Parma aflame with its passionate force. Defiant in their desires to the bloody end, these lovers take “star-crossed” into a whole new galaxy. This crown jewel of Jacobean drama has scandalized and enthralled audiences for four centuries with its singular journey through the fires of desire.

New York Post

"The gore is minimal. Unfortunately, so, too, is the show’s impact...The staging and acting are too timid, as if we were watching a well-meaning college production. But half-measures and good intentions hardly suit a play as outlandish as this one." Full Review

Stage Buddy

"The language is heightened, passionate, yet still easy to follow, in spite of the jam-packed plot...Director Jesse Berger creates some beautiful stage pictures but his production moves at a meandering pace...Overall, the play is still worth seeing, if only for the strength of the text. However, that is likelier to be appreciated on the page than in this particular production." Full Review
