The Last Goodbye, a musical adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, featuring songs by Jeff Buckley, officially opened at San Diego's Old Globe Oct. 6 following preview performances that began Sept. 22.
"The Last Goodbye is a new musical fusing Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet with some of the most thrilling rock music of the past 20 years," press notes state. "That light in yonder window is still the east and Juliet is still the sun...but the sound in her bedchamber is all new: the sweeping, emotional and extraordinarily beautiful songs of the late rock icon Jeff Buckley."
