What can I say that hasn't been said? Just about the most classic of any classic tale. Superb, like all Shakespeare plays.

Yesterday, I watched Romeo and Juliet, staged by our local theatrical college, Studio 58. The kids get their BAs when they graduate the 3-year program, so it’s a serious theatrical institution, one of the best in Canada. I can’t really write a review here.

I'm participating in an online course about Shakespeare, and this is the first play up ...
