One of Shakespeare's most well-known and performed plays, Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. The first Broadway staging in 36 years, this revival of Romeo and Juliet retains Shakespeare’s language while moving the setting to contemporary times in which the warring Montague and Capulet families are of different ethnicities.

What Is the Story of Romeo and Juliet?
William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is perhaps the most well known of all The Bard’s plays. Romeo meets Juliet at a costume party. It is love at first sight as he falls head-over-heels for the lovely young girl, who feels the same way about him. After a romantic conversation over a balcony, the two decide that they must get married at once. This would have been a picture-perfect union of kindred souls, had it not been for fact that their families are sworn enemies. Tragic events are put in motion when Romeo is drawn into a fight with Juliet’s cousin Tybalt, forever altering the lives of the young couple and those who love them.
