News   "Private Romeo," Featuring War Horse Stars Seth Numrich and Matt Doyle, Will Screen in NYC
 
"Private Romeo," a new take on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet that stars War Horse actors Seth Numrich and Matt Doyle as the ill-fated lovers, will premiere in NYC beginning Feb. 10 at Cinema Village.

The project, by writer-director Alan Brown, features Numrich as Sam Singleton—the film's Romeo—opposite Doyle, who plays Glenn Mangan. "Private Romeo" will screen through Feb. 16.

The cast also includes Hale Appleman, Charlie Barnett, Adam Barrie, Chris Bresky, Sean Hudock and Bobby Moreno.

Here's how "Private Romeo" is described: “When eight cadets are left behind at an isolated military high school—the greatest romantic drama ever written seeps out of the classroom and permeates their lives. Incorporating the original text of ‘Romeo and Juliet’, YouTube videos, and lip-synched Indie rock music, ‘Private Romeo’ takes us to a mysterious and tender place that only Shakespeare could have inspired.”

Numrich, who created the role of Albert Narracott in War Horse, has also been seen on Broadway in The Merchant of Venice. Doyle, who plays Billy Narracott, has also appeared in Spring Awakening and Bye Bye Birdie.

Cinema Village is located at 22 East 12th Street. For more information, visit www.privateromeothemovie.com.
