Theater 2020’s critically praised (including by our Heather Quinlan) production of Romeo and Juliet concludes this weekend with two free outdoor performances on Pier 1, Brooklyn Bridge Park, on Saturday, July 30 starting at 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, July 31 at 2:00 p.m. Video and more text after the jump.
Having seen David Fuller’s and Judith Jarosz’s creative use of the interior space at St. Charles Borromeo for the play, I will be curious to see how they use the topography and human-made features of the Park.
Theatergoers who want to see a Shakespeare play this summer without burning a hole in their wallet might try Theater 2020’s Romeo and Juliet. The production is highly original in its cross-cultural setting and retooling of its protagonists as a Muslim and a Hindu. … This is the inaugural production of Theater 2020, which touts itself as the first professional theater company in Brooklyn Heights. And based on their first theatrical effort, the company is worth watching.
