Unrehearsed "Romeo and Juliet" (Plus Food and Drink)

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks


So, how is this for a come-on to see a production of Shakespeare?

"'Romeo and Juliet," presented by The Backroom Shakespeare Project & Ada Street. Serious actors. No director. One rehearsal. At a bar."

Curious? The performance is set to begin at 9 p.m. on June 3, as The Back Room Shakespeare Project, which blithely describes itself as comprised of "some of Chicago's brightest young Shakespeare stars," performs, as advertised. What can you expect? Well, THEY are hoping for "an adventurous, spontaneous and refreshing take on the classic."

Held outdoors at the Ada Street (www.adastreetchicago.com), a ticket ($40.00; $42.39 w/service fee) includes admittance to the play, food (Ada Street's Bar Bites) and a choice of "thematic beverage." Doors open to "Romeo and Juliet attendees at 7:30 p.m., when the kitchen/bar will be open for additional dining and drinking.
