Romeo and Juliet....

Love the play.
Love the set.
The acting????..... not so much.

This play is iconic.  While many adaptations are around, this one was not one of the best.  The set was beautiful, the adaptation to modern time was one I was familiar with the enjoyed.  It honestly came down to acting and it was rough.

Way too much shrieking and uncomfortable hand gestures....(think the Price is White ladies trying to do Shakespeare and you're on the right track)

This is what I like about theatre, if it's good or bad, you always have something to talk about afterwords, so it was a great evening.

However, this was and will always be my favorite adaptation:
