Top Sekrit No Longer! Romeo and Juliet [Sep. 12th, 2013|07:24 am]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry
At a clandestine midnight photo shoot last week I photographed actresses Rachel Gluck and Isa St. Claire who are playing Romeo and Juliet (respectively) in Curio Theatre's upcoming production of the William Shakespeare play directed by Krista Apple.

What would happen, Curio wondered, if Romeo and Juliet were both women? And from this premise is launched the misadventure of these star-cross'd lovers.

This reminds me of an early promo shot for T.A.T.U. and is quite lovely.

Just what I thought at first but it's just the white underwear, I guess. There is a lot more going on in the above photo.

I don't think you can rip off your own work, can you? But, yeah. THEME. Theme and STYLE!

Saw a great site specific Romeo and Juliet in Baltimore this summer, where both the leads were played by and as women.

Answer:

Even if they were both women, they'd still be stupid, reactionary, petulant children with poor judgement.

(Unless that part of the story is reworked and they come up with a better plan this time. As it is, R&J plays out like a Coen brothers movie.)

I would definitely put that poster on my wall. Makes me wish I lived close enough to see the play!
