Romeo and Juliet

Two young hearts brave racial and societal tensions to defy their families’ history and unite. As music blasts from a jukebox, the backdrop in this Baltimore-inspired-Verona is the aftermath of the Vietnam War, the fight for LGBT acceptance, and the ongoing struggle for women’s rights. Along with a vicious dispute between the Montagues and Capulets, a myriad of external forces threatens the love that Romeo and Juliet share. Yet, against all odds, their fatal attraction persists, shattering their lives and changing their community forever. Director Gerrad Alex Taylor transports the star-crossed lovers to a vibrant Virona, infused with the nostalgia and spirit of 1975 Baltimore.
