Romeo and Juliet

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Vanessa Miller

May 4–22, 2016

Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center


It’s a story that’s practically part of our DNA, and yet it still enchants us. A boy, a girl, and a love so deep that they believe they can beat the odds. Families so caught up in the past that they can’t see what’s in front of them. Time racing past. This time he’ll know. This time she’ll see. This time the lark will sing for them tomorrow. Live the romance in an up-close and intimate staging where the dancer’s swirl past, the sword fighters clash, and the heartbeat of the play mixes with your own.
