A historic collaboration of some of Broadway’s biggest names, this iconic contemporization of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet quickly became a classic in its own right, repeatedly sweeping the Tony Awards over decades of revivals. In the same spirit as the 1957 original, Studio Tenn’s production will propel this age-old love story further forward with a vibrant, timeless design.

Chain-link fences, steel ladders and the like will conjure New York’s then-rough-and tumble West Side, with the surrounding elegance of the Schermerhorn Symphony Center serving as a striking symbol of the inner city’s juxtaposition of wealth and want–and the world of human experience in between.
