Dreamers Often Lie
Adaptation of Romeo and Juliet
What is Romeo and Juliet if not the tale of house party that's gotten, well, a little out of hand?
So, grab a plastic cup and join us for a rollicking toast to the dreams and desires at the heart of Shakespeare's most infamous — and revelrous — love story.
The lighting for this production indulged in the extended Capulet bacchanal that encompassed the entire queer adaptation, using dynamic color and focus to lead the audience's attention from the pilgrims meeting on the air mattress, Tybalt's impromptu ribbon dance, or the pillow fight that ends in tragedy.
