The Classical Theatre of Harlem presents Romeo n Juliet | July 5 – July 27


This 4th of July weekend The Classical Theatre of Harlem will launch its presentation of Romeo n Juliet, which will run from this Saturday, July 5th – July 27th.  Adapted and directed by Justin Emeka, this interpretation of the classic William Shakespeare piece will take the stage at the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater in Marcus Garvey Park (123rd Street at Mt. Morris Park West, between Fifth Ave and Malcolm X Blvd) in Harlem with shows set for Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 7:30pm, and Fridays at 8:15 with a pre-show Jazzmobile concert at 7:00.  The Classical Theatre of Harlem’s Romeo n Juliet is FREE and open to the public, and will run approximately 90 minutes.

This intense and fiery CTH production of Shakespeare’s classic will reveal the unpredictable passion of love, barely separated from the unforgiving tragedy of violence. The stage explodes with soulful rhythms, verse, and movement, as Hip-Hop beats provide the backdrop for a community suffering from internal conflict. In its second annual summer offering at the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater in Marcus Garvey Park, CTH again brings together a dynamic cast and creative team of familiar faces from last season’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream along with some talented new additions.
