Virtue Itself Turns Vice

Alack! The production of Romeo and Juliet at the Shakespeare Festival is shockingly vulgar. And I like it. I've seen the play previously but I don't recall anything resembling the near-constant sexual emphasis of this version. It's so lusty that I found myself alternately blushing and laughing out loud. "Eyes, look your last!"- the season ends July 8.

    William has plenty of open source if you know what I mean.

    I'll let all figure the rest out.

    But Romeo & Juliet were Adolescents, what did they know? What's love got to do with it anyhow?

    i was out there sunday night and had a ball (except the fact that the mosquitos managed to adventure their way up my shorts...) especially with the way that they really made the lewd jokes stand out. they read it far closer to the original text than the overly romanticized versions we've all seen.

    unfortunately, the guy who played romeo was a bit...distracting in the way that he delivered his lines...but it was enjoyable anyways.

    You're both spot-on with your comments. Part of this production's fun is that both Romeo and Juliet are completely unsympathetic. I think that's why Romeo delivered his lines like that, DNA (at least that's my interpretation).
