Shakespeare's greatest love story by DC's biggest fools... Romeo and Juliet, the classic story of two young lovers divided by a family feud, borrows heavily from the tradition of the Italian Comedy. This high-octane version, featuring five actors in a 70-minute cutting, brings physical spectacularity to Shakespeare's poetry and highlights tragedy by juxtaposing it with humor.
