Alamo Drafthouse is set to host a screening of Stratford Festival’s production of Romeo and Juliet on Saturday, April 21 at 2PM to benefit Austin Shakespeare. One dollar of each ticket will go towards the classic theater company to help fund their year-round performances and educational opportunities.
In 2017, Canada's Stratford Festival presented William Shakespeare's enduring favorite Romeo and Juliet. Director Scott Wentworth brings fresh life to the beloved tale of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers in this “funny, moving, thrilling” production (National Post), starring Antoine Yared and Sara Farb as the “youthful, impulsive, and vivacious” title characters (Toronto Star). Featuring “a perfect portrait of the Nurse from Seana McKenna” (The Globe and Mail), an “electric Mercutio” in Evan Buliung (National Post), and a “solid ensemble” (Toronto Star), this production is “captivating from start to finish” (Broadway World).
