Shakespeare on the Sound in Rowayton, CT presents a newly conceived production of Romeo and Juliet with all new music and songs by Passing Strange composers Stew and Heidi Rodewald July 18-July 29.
According to press materials, "this year’s production of Romeo and Juliet is conceived as a dinner party among eight friends who have an annual tradition of reading a Shakespeare play on a gorgeous summer’s night. Over the course of reading the play, the story takes over and guests both on-stage find themselves completely consumed by the momentum and poetry of the events in Shakespeare's great love story."
The cast of Romeo and Juliet includes Ali Ahn (Juliet), David Cale (Friar), Matt Citron (Mercutio), Will Cohn (Benvolio), William Jackson Harper (Romeo), Rachael Holmes (Lady Capulet/Tybalt, Damian Lemar Hudson (Singer/Paris), Chinasa Ogbuagu (Nurse),and Tony Torn (Capulet).
