Romeo and Juliet Like You’ve Never Seen it Before

Shakespeare comes back to Harlem with a special rendition of Romeo and Juliet

Director Justin Emeka is at it again!

He's at the helm of the Classical Theatre of Harlem's rendition of Romeo and Juliet.

Emeka has a way of re-imagining classical Shakespearean works into productions that contemporary audiences enjoy. If you saw Emeka's critically-acclaimed vision of A Midsummer Night's Dream last year, then you know what I'm talking about. You also know that you don't want to miss out on CTH's Romeo and Juliet.

The performance is FREE to the public. So take a ride, or walk if you are nearby, to the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater in Marcus Garvey Park. Enter the park at 124th Street and Fifth Avenue and walk south to the venue.

Performances of Romeo and Juliet are on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday at 7:30 p.m. Friday's curtain is at 8:15 p.m., following Jazzmobile's free concerts at 7:00p.m. Don't wait until the last minute because the last show is on Sunday, July 27.

Enjoy and I hope to see you uptown at a performance of the Classical Theatre of Harlem’s Romeo and Juliet.
