Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

Juliet on the balconyRomeo & Juliet


What the Critics Said:

“A refreshing and lively version of Romeo and Juliet is currently on stage in Forest Meadows at Dominican College in San Rafael. The outdoor theatre and its surroundings are used most advantageously in this production.”
- Bess Davoren, Tiburon Ark

“Fresh interpretations add exciting nuances in ‘Romeo & Juliet’…Paying rapt attention to the language and allowing lines to suggest fresh interpretations, fresh business, the cast as a whole found exciting nuances to add to some of literature’s most famous characters… Due to the week-long training with Oxford’s Dr. Rob Clare, it’s the first act that sails along at the best pace… With poetry taking a front seat and the physical business still beautifully done, this production actually leads the audience to new interpretations as well. I can honestly say that Marin Shakes brought out elements of the language that I never had the pleasure to view on any other stage, and with a play of such enormous popularity, that distinction in itself is a great recommendation.”

- Chrisanne Beckner, Commuter Times

Romeo and Juliet _ balcony

“The Marin Shakespeare Company’s Romeo and Juliet, played in the spectacular setting of the beautiful Forest Meadows amphitheatre on the Dominican College campus with elegant minimal sets (Bruce Lackovic) and lovely Renaissance costumes (Michael A. Berg), is a visual delight….Laurels to Phoebe Moyer, who creates a genuinely vibrant nurse, Michael Eliopoulos a spirited and agile Mercutio, Michael Berg the good Friar Lawrence, Bob Borwick a manly Benvolio (also credited for the directing the fine combat scenes) and Doug Nolan the clownish servant.”
- Annette Lust, Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle
