"Wow, thrilling and I loved it!" sum up my thoughts on the performance of Romeo and Juliet by the Melbourne Shakespeare Company.
Most of us know the story of Romeo and Juliet and I was expecting just that. But this performance was a whole lot more and then some. Set in the roaring 1920s, it tells this story respectfully with swinging beats, singing and dancing as well as gut-wrenching, hilarious (the nurse!) and breath-taking performances by all the cast in all the right places. The 1920's theme was very relatable and despite knowing the ending I found myself still holding my breath.
