Shakespeare on the Sound, Connecticut's outdoor summer theater company, presents a newly conceived production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, under the direction of Joanna Settle
, now playing through July 29th. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production shots below.
Romeo and Juliet features Ali Ahn
(Juliet), David Cale
(Friar), Matt Citron
(Mercutio), Will Cohn
(Benvolio), William Jackson
Harper (Romeo), Rachael Holmes
(Lady Capulet/Tybalt), Damian Lemar Hudson
(Singer/Paris), Chinasa Ogbuagu
(Nurse),and Tony Torn
(Capulet). Shakespeare on the Sound presents an annual production in two waterfront parks in the towns of Greenwich and Rowayton, and admission is always free of charge.
The show's cast and creative team includes Joanna Settle (Director), and Stew and Heidi Rodewald (Music, Lyrics, and Additional Scenes), and the cast: Ali Ahn (Juliet), David Cale (Friar), Matt Citron (Mercutio), Will Cohn (Benvolio), William Jackson Harper (Romeo), Rachael Holmes (Lady Capulet/Tybalt), Damian Lemar Hudson (Singer/Paris), Chinasa Ogbuagu (Nurse), and Tony Torn (Capulet).
This year's production of Romeo and Juliet is conceived as a dinner party among eight friends who have an annual tradition of reading a Shakespeare play on a gorgeous summer's night. Over the course of reading the play, the story will take over and guests both on-stage and off will find themselves completely consumed by the momentum and poetry of the events in Shakespeare's great love story.
The production will premiere in Greenwich and then make its move to Rowayton, playing two locations on Long Island Sound: Baldwin Park in Greenwich (June 26 – July 8, 2012) and Pinkney Park in Rowayton (July 18 – July 29, 2012).
