Romeo and Juliet

The Baron's Men Presents: Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet, one of William Shakespeare’s best-known and most beloved works, was penned and first performed at the end of the sixteenth century, and has remained enormously popular throughout the ages.  This tragic tale of star-crossed lovers, with its themes of love, family, passion and Fate vs Free Will have entertained, enthralled and inspired audiences for centuries.

Juliet, the only child of the patriarch of the Capulet family, is courted by a potential husband but instead falls in love with Romeo, son of Lord Montague, sworn enemy to Lord Capulet.  Despite the hate that surrounds them, the lovers’ passions soon prove overwhelming, though fate and family command they remain apart.  Ultimately, their joy turns to anguish as death takes one, then the other as these lovers will not be parted, even in death.

The Baron’s Men are proud to contribute to Shakespeare’s enduring legacy by bringing this tragic tale to Richard Garriott’s Curtain Theater, with the riveting performance and stunning period costumes that have become trademarks of Baron’s Men productions.  Audiences will be entranced as the story of the Montague/Capulet feud unfolds, and as Romeo and Juliet’s passion evolves, and the intensity of their struggle to be together incites a feverous storm impacting friends and family alike, with tragic consequences.
