Romeo and Juliet

Disappointing R and J.

Recycled Shakespeare, Seattle’s newest Repertory Theatre, located in North Seattle, recently produced Romeo and Juliet, a play Shakespeare himself called a tragedy, but what actually has elements of melodrama. Since everybody knows the story of the star-crossed lover’s and has seen the play umpteen times, any production needs a huge dose of imagination to sustain it for two and a half-hours without cuts. In spite of some technical strengths, Brandon Brown’s production lacked both creativity and brevity.
