Forget everything you think you know! Romeo & Juliet was written for the stage and TheatreiNQ's exciting new production firmly reclaims Shakespeare's darkly romantic tragedy, back to the theatre where it belongs. From the same creative team that brought you last year's sell–out smash, Macbeth, this year's Shakespeare Under the Stars is destined to be a theatrical event not to be missed.
Directed by Terri Brabon with a musical soundtrack by Kerry Muzzey and Fight Choreography by Robert Shook, this production features James Thomasson & Anna Wallace in the title roles, supported by the stellar TheatreiNQ Ensemble including Brendan O'Connor (Lord Capulet) Arminelle Fleming (Lady Capulet) Ron Pulman (Tybalt) Michael Gleeson (Mercutio) Terri Brabon (The Nurse) and marks the return of Syd Brisbane from Melbourne to play Friar Laurence.
