First reviews of Romeo & Juliet in Dublin

Saturday, 4. June 2011 15:49

“Things got off to a rollicking good start on Wednesday night with a bawdy and brazen production of Romeo & Juliet performed al fresco, under the aegis of Neil Sheppeck…”
“….a cracking, handsome cast acquitted themselves remarkably well in what transpired to be a surprisingly feel good affair – mounting body count notwithstanding.”
Gabriel Thomson made for a suitably earnest, conflicted Romeo and found a natural chemistry with Lucy Wray’s defiant Juliet, while laughs came thick and fast courtesy of Sioned Jones’s earthy, lumbering nurse and Joel Sams’ swaggering Mercutio.”
“Little wonder the capacity crowd rose to its feet in applause as the curtains fell…”
Daragh Reddin, Metro-Herald
“A lovely addition was some gregorian-chant style hymns sung off stage by the company not on stage during parts of the play.  Some of the actors also played some (presumably) Elizabethan music while the audience were getting settled and again during the performance to good effect.”
Claire Bradley, Dublin Culture
