Signature Theatre’s All-Male R&J Explores Forbidden Love In A Drama Within A Drama

Signature Theatre presents Joe Calaraco’s take on the Shakespearean classic Romeo and Juliet, exploring the famous saga of forbidden love in a unique in-the-round setting.

Shakespeare’s R & J centers around a repressive all-male Catholic boarding school that bans Romeo and Juliet in favor of Latin conjugations and the Ten Commandments. The four young men who bring the play to life recreate Shakespeare’s transcendent saga.

These students unearth a secret copy and steal into the night to recite the prohibited tale of adolescent passion. While it begins as a lark, the story gradually draws the boys into a discovery of universal truth that parallels their own coming-of-age. A riveting drama within a drama, R&J transcends the boundaries between play and player.
