This summer CSC is presenting Romeo and Juliet in a portable production that will travel to 16 locales. The presentation is a concise rendition of the tragic love story, using seven actors, each playing at least two roles with a lot of quick costume changes. The stage is six moveable wall panels festooned with posters extolling the feuding Capulets and the Montagues. A bench is the only other piece of scenery, serving as a bed, a bier and more.
A production like this requires sound fundamentals and not a lot of fussiness around details. That’s what CSC delivers in “two hours’ traffic.”
See it at various locations throughout the Tri-State through Aug. 28. Get show detailsand Rick Pender's review here.
