BWW Reviews: ROMEO & JULIET Is a Comedy?
by Jeff Davis - Apr 25, 2014

The words 'A Tragedy' sometimes even accompany the title. The only tragedies of this production are the over three hour running time, the direction that plays the majority of the story for laughs, and the fact that The Baron's Men, while claiming to have great reverence for the Bard, would do this to one of Shakespeare's greatest works.
