Romeo & Juliet
Theater by PerformInternational / Sarah Kane Juliet Romeo and Juliet, probably the best known love story in the world, addresses the theme of love in a particular context, one of hate, violence and aggression. Families feud with families, individuals taunt and spew accusations and insults at each other, sticks and swords are drawn at the drop of a hat and the atmosphere of Verona – or London or any city in our troubled world – you can cut with a knife. How can love like Romeo’s, like Juliet’s, so fragile, so tender, so true, so intense – not words we necessarily feel comfortable using today - be born and live in such an atmosphere? It seems impossible, and yet it happens. It survives for so short a time and it dies. Yet it transforms, transforms the hate, the violence and aggression. Yes, it is possible to change; nothing is set in stone, least of all those extraordinary creatures, human beings. The consequences that everyone involved draw from the deaths of Romeo and Juliet show us that we can do things differently, however world-weary we may have become. The deaths can give us hope that we, too, can not only change ourselves, but by changing ourselves, make change happen around us.

There, he meets and begins a casual friendship with Gretta Adler, their friendship based on a shared love and goal of a profession in the creative arts. But also on this trip, Richard stumbles across the Mercury Theatre and meets Orson Welles, who, based on an impromptu audition, offers Richard an acting job as Lucius in his modern retelling of Julius Caesar, which includes such stalwart Mercury Theatre players as Joseph Cotten and George Coulouris. Despite others with official roles as producer John Houseman, this production belongs to Welles, the unofficial/official dictator.
