Aquila Theatre Presents a Minimal, Starkly Beautiful Romeo and Juliet

The story is so well known, star-crossed lovers who are doomed from the start, so why is this production special? This minimal adaptation is a joy of the senses: Simple, pared-down and shadowy, Aquila Theatre’s Romeo and Juliet, directed and adapted by Desiree Sanchez, is a completely new way to experience one of Shakespeare’s most iconic plays. Shakespeare’s eight plus actors are cut down to five, the original seventeen roles reduced to eight. The story is condensed, focused, and chiseled away at until it stands out in uncluttered relief.

According to a recent review by Sam Hall, of DC Metro Theater Arts, “This is a very real and very serious production, full of shadows and chiaroscuro light….We have here a remarkable fusion of design, text, and performance, of consciousness, scenery, sound, light, space, meaning, and movement. This is Romeo and Juliet as high tragedy, a balletic dream …. a grandeur of poetry and high art. It is beautiful and disturbing. Deeply moving, without a trace of sentimentality. ” 

Experience the beauty of Aquila Theatre’s new production of Romeo and Juliet, playing at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts next Thursday, October 22, 2015 at 8:00 PM. There will be a pre-performance discussion with Aquila Theatre tour members at 7:00 pm in the Rozsa lobby. Tickets for Romeo and Juliet are on sale now, $24 for adults, $10 for youth, and no charge for Michigan Tech students with the Experience Tech fee. Advance reserved seating is now available, please order tickets early!

For more details please see the attached press release. A photo is also attached, please credit Richard Termine.
