Romeo and Juliet @ Astoria Park

Rude Grooms’ Romeo and Juliet is William Shakespeare’s beloved tragedy in a production full of romance, laughter, and music. Rude Grooms brings its second annual free summer production to Rainey Park, Queensbridge Park, Astoria Park, and the Plaxall Gallery. This fast-paced 90-minute play is suitable for the whole family!

The Capulet and Montague families’ ancient feud erupts anew in Verona. When the children of these two clans meet, they fall head over heels and secretly marry. Their journey begins in beauty, laughter, and childlike joy — but the enduring hatred bubbles over into violence yet again, tearing them apart the same day they are joined as one. Rude Grooms’ Romeo and Juliet is a romantic comedy turned heart-breaking tragedy; a fable set in a contemporary world, full of live acoustic music, breathtaking action sequences, and an actors from Shakespeare’s Globe, Classic Stage Company, The Old Globe, and Asolo Repertory Theatre.
