The Acting Company & The Guthrie Theater

Romeo and Juliet

April 20 – 24

Two Tony® award-winning companies – the Acting Company and The Guthrie Theater – combine forces in this not-to-be-missed production of the greatest love story of all time. With the perfect combination of lyricism, suspense, drama, and of course, romance, Shakespeare enfolds us in this heartbreaking tale of star-crossed lovers as they plunge heart-first into love from their first shy glances to their last heartrending kiss. Trapped between two worlds as their feuding families destroy their dreams for happiness, a hidden tragedy unfolds as their love races toward a final confrontation with a fate that you will not soon forget!
