romeo and juliet at magruder park

the maryland shakespeare festival hit hyattsville with a
short, but hilarious warm-up pre-performance
and energetic performance of romeo and juliet.
it only added to the ambiance that as the play developed, dusk slowly settled in.

romeo and juliet get married secretly.

there is nothing like a live performance.
although the kids — and even i — couldn’t understand all of shakespeare’s nuanced genius,
there is nothing like live performance
where an actor so immersed in her/his character
can look you in the eye
while reciting her/his lines with such vigor.
good show!
