      Romeo and Juliette, being performed by a traveling production from France - must be a good performance, or so I thought. The lights were questionable, the costumes were down-right ridiculous, the acting left much to be

      imagined, and the classic part of the Shakespearean romance was left to the way-side. Not only were the highlights from the original left entirely out, completely irrelevant scenes were turned into entire numbers. The balcony scene ...

      • lasted for a total of seconds, and Mercurcio’s death turned into a West Side story dance number. No emotion was felt in the audience, nor did they need to, as a willowly character silently portraying the
        imminent foreshadowing misfortune followed everyone around stage, laughably so. The only redeeming part of the entire production was watching Korean teenagers flock to the front row to wave to the actors like Bon Jovi at Madison Square Garden.
