A Commedia Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet, the classic story of two young lovers divided by a family feud, borrows heavily from the tradition of Commedia dell'Arte. This high-octane version, featuring five actors in a 80-minute cutting, brings physical spectacularity to Shakespeare's poetry and highlights tragedy by juxtaposing it with humor.
