Shakespeare at Notre Dame
Romeo and Juliet (AFTLS Spring 2023)
March 1 - 3, 2023
Alternating between laugh-out-loud comedy, exuberant romance, and wrenching tragedy, Romeo and Juliet features Shakespeare's greatest romantic pairing: a star-crossed duo whose passion careens into disaster. Populated with immortal characters, high drama, and Shakespeare's most famed passages, Romeo and Juliet is as powerful as ever. The feud between two dynastic families is put to the ultimate test when Romeo, of the Montague family, and Juliet, of the Capulets, fall deeply into love. Prevented from marrying by their warring families yet unable to turn away from each other, the lovers embark on a dangerous plan to secretly wed, leading to unexpected yet devastating consequences.
Actors From The London Stage, the globally celebrated 5-actor touring company, returns with a new staging of Shakespeare's immortal tale. With each actor portraying multiple roles, Romeo and Juliet is a stirring, engaging, and moving night of theater.
This event takes place at Washington Hall.
Presented by Shakespeare at Notre Dame.
