A love so right, a world so wrong
A pair of star-crossed lovers take the stage, under the stars and with lush period detail, in Shakespeare’s passionate and tragic tale of warring families and young love. Inspired by the natural mirror of the play’s progression from light to darkness, Dámaso Rodríguez, Artistic Director of Portland’s Artists Repertory Theatre, directs one of the greatest love stories in the English language on the open-air Allen Elizabethan stage. When Juliet and Romeo, children of enemies, meet at a fateful dance, a love for the ages ignites, until fate and a legacy of hatred turns the world against them. Emily Ota (Juliet) and William Thomas Hodgson (Romeo) join a large cast of beloved OSF actors in this timeless story of love, hatred and tragic consequences.
Development of Romeo and Juliet is supported by a grant from the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation.
