‘& Juliet’ a world premiere at NJ Rep

juliet

"& Juliet" a world premiere by Robert Caisley opens Thursday, May 4 at NJ Rep, 179 Broadway, Long Branch.

Displaying Juliet11.jpgCharlie Vaughn, an idealistic young director comes to a small conservative college campus to stage a production of "Romeo & Juliet". When he announces his decision to cast a fourteen-year-old boy in the role of Juliet, as was the Elizabethan custom, he challenges the "old school" sensibilities of the campus community and invites the wrath of a young actress who feels her time is due. As a result, Charlie turns to his new colleague – a thirty-year veteran of the drama department – for advice on how to handle the student's challenge to his authority. 

Performances are Thursdays, Fridays at 8pm; Saturdays at 3pm and 8pm; Sundays at 2pm thru June 4. Tickets are $46. Call 732-229-3166 or visit www.njrep.org.
