In the scorching heat of summer, the streets of Verona simmer with tension. Two rival families are fighting an undeclared war.

 

With emotions running high, Verona is a powder keg of barely suppressed violence. And when love strikes the houses of Montague and Capulet, it sparks a chain of events that will blow the city apart.

 

 

2014 Reviews:

 

BroadwayWorld:

 

“Site-specific shows like this work when they integrate their surroundings into the production. With graves literally encircling the stage, Antic Disposition’s Romeo and Juliet delivers that brief perfectly, a unique, and thrilling, experience.”

 

Ginger Hibiscus:

 

“Spectacular in its execution; visually stunning and enthralling, moments of deafening silence sharpen the senses and draw the audience in.

 

“The gorgeous visuals ... pervade the show, with a magical theatrical moment created in the ball at the Capulet mansion. Guests swirl elegantly, faces obscured by beautiful Venetian masks; a surreal yet enchanting vision."

2008 Reviews:

 

The Stage:

 

"Ami Sayers' Juliet is a thoroughly believable and endearing portrait of a young teenager … with the rare ability to make every line sound as if it is being thought of and spoken for the first time."

 

"This fast-moving production … is always clear and, at its best, as real and moving as if it had never been seen or read before."

 

British Theatre Guide:

 

"Susan Penhaligon is perfectly cast as the utterly adorable and doting Nurse. Penhaligon seems to embody the essence of this character and brings fresh humour to the role."

 

"Philip Correia is riveting as the powerful Mercutio and lends a sense of maverick to the character, delivering his scenes with flourish."

 

"A slick production, strong acting and great casting."

 

Fringe Report:

 

"Andrew Hayden-Smith's handsome Romeo has … an easy fluency with Romeo's many lines. It's an energetic performance."

 

"Directors Ben Horslen and John Risebero produce fine staging, tight action and a really driving pace that makes it motor along."

 

"Designer John Risebero deserves a medal of minimalism for his lovely set. His opening and closing scenes … are bookending masterpieces of chilling, spine-pricking emotion."

 

"The music by James Burrows is so good that there's almost a waiting for the next bit of it. Each piece creates a new mood with remarkable effect."
