2017 Winter Shakespeare

Romeo and Juliet

Directed by Santiago Sosa


Shakespeare's existentialist masterpiece explores filial relationships and mental illness, while illustrating the full range of human behaviors from wretched cruelty to perfect love. The Nashville Shakespeare Festival presents the first full professional production of this play to be seen in Nashville in over 100 years. This is a wonderful opportunity to see a rarely produced and alarmingly relevant play presented in the beautiful, intimate Troutt Theater.
