STAGE TUBE: First Look at Scenes from Signature's SHAKESPEARE'S R&J

Signature Theatre teams up this winter with Artistic Associate Joe Calarco for a bold new production of Calarco's play Shakespeare's R&J. Presented as Signature's first-ever production in-the-round, with a revised script never before heard in North America, Calarco's modern-day drama melds the timeless power of Romeo and Juliet with an imaginative new coming-of-age tale. Check out the video teaser below!

When a repressive all-male Catholic boarding school bans Romeo and Juliet in favor of Latin conjugations and the Ten Commandments, four students unearth a secret copy of the script and steal into the night to recite the prohibited tale of adolescent passion. What begins as a lark gradually yields surprising discoveries about greed, love, and adulthood. Brought to life by four exceptional actors (Rex Daugherty, Jefferson Farber, Alex Mills, and Joel David Santner), Calarco's drama within a drama transcends the boundaries between play and player.

Calarco will direct the production, running February 5 to March 3, 2013 in Signature's MAX Theatre. Scenic designer James Kronzer, lighting designer Chris Lee, and costume designer Kathleen Geldard will join Calarco on the creative team.
