REVIEWS

Shakespeare Theatre Company’s production as directed by Alan Paul has given us a fresh take on this classic story…Paul has set the production in the modern day and has successfully found new layers to the play…A revelatory theatre experience.
— DC Metro Theater Arts
Just the right amount of energy and modern accouterments to light a match to what was already the hottest romance of all time.
— DC Outlook
Paul gives us a production that believes in the love story at its core, while not ignoring the danger of the violence and decay imbued in the world that surrounds it…Alan Paul’s production reminded me of so many reasons why Romeo and Juliet is a genuinely good play.
— Two Hours Traffic
Alan Paul’s direction of Shakespeare is brilliant…After bringing new life to classic musicals such as Kiss Me, Kate, Man of La Mancha, and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum for STC, Alan Paul can now add another classic to his list of triumphs. Bringing fresh eyes, sharp casting, and compelling collaboration to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is likely to be a new chapter in Paul’s steady rise as a sought after young director.
— Jeffrey Walker, D.C. Theatre Scene
The violent plot’s fast moving brawls are notably good, and the tone is frisky and often funny.
— The Washington Post
Romeo and Juliet is certainly a classic and I commend [Alan] Paul who has taken the tale to another level and my very well get the youth of today to consider reading and seeing more Shakespeare.
— Charles Shubow, Broadway World
