Williamstown Theatre Festival presents the world premiere of The Last Goodbye, a new rock musical featuring the music of Jeff Buckley, through Aug. 20.



Adapted and directed by Michael Kimmel, the piece takes a contemporary look at Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

Kimmel leads a cast featuring Nick Blaemire (Cry-Baby, Glory Days), Kelli Barrett (The Royal Family), Celina Carvajal (The Toxic Avenger), Merle Dandridge (Spamalot), Michael Park ("As the World Turns," The Burnt Part Boys), Damon Daunno, Tom Hennes, Max Jenkins, Jo Lampert), Jesse Lenat, Deb Lyons, Grace McLean, Ashley Robinson and Chloe Webb.

According to Williamstown, "A legendary love. A transcendent artist. Shakespeare’s classic verse meets the driving, passionate rock of iconic singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley in the world premiere of The Last Goodbye... An ensemble of fourteen singer/actors bring to life the lyrical beauty of two great poets set in a world of youthful angst, grandeur, and grit. Fall for Romeo and Juliet all over again in this incendiary new musical."
