VERONA WALLS to Run 3/3-26 at Workshop Theater
by BWW News Desk - Feb 4, 2016

Some Shakespearean tragedies are ripe for a prequel; amidst the chaos and bloodshed, you wonder what happened to get us here, and what might be going on just out of view.  In 'Verona Walls,' playwright Laura Hirschberg, a Shakespeare devotee since childhood, imagines a background story for 'Romeo and Juliet' that is separate from the ancient grudges that frame the Bard's tragedy.  She spins a separate and most profound 'bromance' for the Montague boys in this new play, which centers on the loves and mistakes of Mercutio--Romeo's best friend and Shakespeare's notorious scene-stealer--as the action of 'Romeo and Juliet' plays out somewhere offstage.  The Workshop Theater, 312 West 36th Street, will present the play's world premiere March 3 to 26, directed by DeLisa M. White.
