Scott Wentworth brings fresh life to the beloved tale of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers in the Stratford Festival’s “funny, moving, thrilling” production (National Post) of Romeo and Juliet, 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).

       WHAT THE CRITICS SAID:

  • “The cobwebs have been dusted off of the text, making you feel as if you’re hearing it for the first time”  The Globe and Mail
  • “Evan Buliung is an electric Mercutio”  National Post
  • “This play, so often produced, [comes] fresh to life on the Festival stage … Scott Wentworth’s [production of it] may be the best of them all”  National Post
  • “One of the best productions of Romeo and Juliet I’ve seen” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
  • “Captivating from start to finish”  Broadway World
  • “A rare treat”  Toronto Star
  • “Sara Farb is the true spark that sets this production on fire …  [and] Antoine Yared’s finely etched portrayal is the ideal complement  to the seemingly more self-assured Juliet.”  Postmedia
