"But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. "Performed at Shakespeare's Globe, London's faithful reconstruction of the open-air playhouse designed in 1599, Romeo and Juliet is arguably the best-loved of all love stories in Western literature. The play's masterful combination of lyricism, suspense, and dramatic changes of mood is dramatized by an energetic cast that stars Adetomiwa Edun--called "a Romeo to die for" by The Independent (London)--and, in her stage debut as Juliet, Ellie Kendrick. Directed by Dominic Dromgoole."--Container
