To bring a story to the stage is such a privilege. I was given the opportunity back in 2019 for which I not only directed but I also acted and choreographed the show. It was a humbling experience for me and the cast and crew. I realized that we are in our own right storytellers of our own fate and that we have the power to make dreams into a reality for as long as we believe in ourselves and others.

Shakespeare is such a constant in the theatrical cannon that there is often a desire to do something innovative with his work. Reinventing the Bard can provoke an eye-roll or two and Director Ola Ince’s new version of Romeo & Juliet at the Globe will certainly divide audiences. Ince choses to show the play from the aspect of mental health issues; the couple choose to die because they are mentally afflicted, rather than because they are in love.
