Rome and Juliet, Shakespeare's Globe, review
After his smash-hit Othello and record-breaking Hamlet , Barry Edelstein returns to the Shakespeare Festival to take on the greatest love story of all time.

A young woman frets upstairs in her family's country manor on her wedding day, fearful she's about to marry the wrong man.
Similarly, I sometimes feel that Romeo and Juliet is no play for middle-aged critics. We've seen it too often, and the sharp joy and pain of young love has become a distant memory. As a result, I often feel like a skeleton at the feast and find myself grumbling that this is little more than a romantic comedy that facilely turns into a tragedy of mere bad luck.

There is something about this welcoming and festive theatre that always makes you feel exceptionally close to our greatest writer.
