The Old Globe presents The Last Goodbye, a new musical fusing Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet with the incendiary songs of the legendary singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley. Conceived and adapted by Michael Kimmel, the rock musical is directed by two-time Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson). Choreography is by Emmy Award nominee Sonya Tayeh ("So You Think You Can Dance"), and orchestrations, music direction and arrangements are by Kris Kukul. The Last Goodbye will run on the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage in the Old Globe Theatre, part of the Globe's Conrad Prebys Theatre Center, now through Nov. 3, 2013.

The greatest love story of all time is now a musical. A cast of leading young Broadway talent to brings Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to new musical life. The unforgettable music of Jeff Buckley (including "Hallelujah") will stir your soul as thrilling swordplay and stagecraft stir your pulse. The Last Goodbye is a breathtaking and hugely entertaining new musical!
