Will Geer's Theatricum Botanicum
Theatricum sets ‘Romeo and Juliet’ in East Jerusalem to kick off summer season in unique outdoor setting. Incorporating our trademark “Theatricum twist,” our staging of Shakespeare’s immortal love story places the star crossed lovers in the political and cultural clash of an Israeli-Palestinian setting. Raised among age-old prejudices, street violence and religious differences that divide East Jerusalem, Romeo and Juliet’s transcendent love becomes infused with provocative new insights for today’s audiences.
