Romeo and Juliet Theatre Reviews and Photo on Opening Night!

Romeo and Juliet with Renee (and son Miles playing the role of Romeo) has it's premiere and we have a review and a couple of photos!

Review

Theater review: 'Romeo and Juliet' has romance, humor, sorrow and great sword fighting
Tallahassee Democrat

...The demure Juliet seems at first completely overshadowed by her Nurse, played with great physical comedy and bawdy presence by special guest artist Renée O'Connor. The Nurse is a memorable performance; O’Connor’s fans from her years playing Gabrielle in the TV cult hit "Xena: Warrior Princess" won't be disappointed. In his first professional performance, Miles Muir — O'Connor's 16-year-old son — does a sterling job conveying the raw emotion of Romeo. His joy and sorrow come through, breathing life into the character.
