Pocket Universe, the company behind the Julius Caesar set in an all-girls high school as well as the Hollywood-set The Maid's Tragedy, returns Off-Broadway this winter with a contemporary take on Romeo & Juliet.

The cast will be made up of Gold as Juliet, Trace Pope (The Reckless Season, Deployed the Musical) as Romeo, Ashil Lee (All One Forest, Men on Boats) as Tybalt/Nurse, Lauren Pisano (Taming of the Shrew, Romeo and Juliet at Vermont Shakespeare Festival) as Capulet/Mercutio, Schuyler Van Amson (Tumbleweed, Nature Whatever) as Benvolio/Friar/Paris, and Maddie Perez Browning (When We Were Young and Unafraid, Up/Down Here/There) as the Teenage Girl.

The creative team includes associate directors Jessica Dukatt and Amanda Cook, lighting designer Christina Tang, set designer Benny Pitt, costume designer Ashleigh Poteat, with fight direction by Will Gallacher. Taylor Elise Keller serves as production stage manager.
