LOS ANGELES -- Romeo and Juliet in 50 minutes. On March 25 at 10.30 AM, Will & Company will start its second decade in exactly the same fashion it began its first, with a performance of Romeo and Juliet before an audience of young people.
It was in Sept. 1988 that Will & Co. unveiled its first production of the play in condensed form. Ten years, 20 touring productions, 40 broken swords and more than 5,000 performances later, Will & Co. will repeat itself by performing Romeo and Juliet in the 500-seat Tom Bradley Theatre of the Los Angeles Theatre Center.
Evening performances are scheduled from April 2-25 at 8 PM.
The LATC is at 514 S. Spring St. Call (213) 485-1631.
