Juliet and Romeo
A comedic spin on William Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy, Juliet and Romeo centers on a second-rate contemporary author who finds himself transported to the city of Verona in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, where he attempts to change the Bard’s original ending.
Juliet and Romeo was created by Paul Gordon, a Tony Award nominee for his music for Jane Eyre and Curtis Moore, an Emmy Award nominee for original song for Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Produced by the UC Davis Department of Theatre and Dance and Catalyst: A Theatre Think Tank (C3T) in a special collaboration with Southern Utah University’s (SUU) Department of Theatre and Dance.
