To Be Romeo & Juliet DVD

Posted by terryjamesresourcecentre on August 26, 2009

Accompanies actors as they prepare to portray Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers in three different stage productions in three different countries. Emotional meltdowns, twisted ankles and cast mutinies are all part of what it takes to be Romeo and Juliet at a youth summer camp production in Guelph, Ontario, an amateur production in Reading, England, and a professional production at the Chilean National Theatre. Focusing on the lead actors, this video compares these three very different productions in terms of interpretation and process, and creates a vivid record of these individuals transforming themselves into the timeless, tragic lovers Romeo and Juliet. The result is a lively and evocative examination of theatre, acting, and love.
