One of the greatest love stories ever told, Shakespeare's classic tragedy about star-crossed lovers in the midst of a violent family feud has been entertaining audiences for over 400 years. “Romeo and Juliet” is a play that questions what every generation and every age holds most dear. The characters embark on a journey of a life and death, love and hate—themes relevant to the world today. Features students from JMU's School of Theatre and Dance.
