Great staging

Don't see it if You don't.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if you want to see a non-traditional production of Romeo and Juliet.

Don't see it if you don't like somewhat modern interpretations of Shakespeare.

"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."
