"Marantz's production is a sweet, straightforward retelling of the star-crossed lovers' tale...The production boasts some strong performances...But there aren't many surprises here. A gesture toward a concept, positioning the Capulets as modern-day corporate kingpins and the Montagues as labor types, does little except to force half the cast into stifling suits and ties. Still, it's the story we're here to see, and the Drilling Company presents it well."
