PRAISE FOR Romeo N Juliet

Harlem World

“This intense and fiery production continues a movement to reimagine classical theater. RnJ reveals the unpredictable passion of love, barely separated from the unforgiving tragedy of violence. The stage explodes with soulful music, verse and movement, as hip-hop beats and dance-hall rhythms provide the backdrop for a community suffering from internal conflict.”

THE New York TIMES

“A keen energy, combining the verse with dance and promising a resonant interpretation”

THE New York TIMES

“A succubus with a laugh like a hyena, Lula comes on very strong, then switches to girlish flirtation; she makes dire accusations, then retreats into innocent banter. Her moods turn faster than the car’s wheels… A charged atmosphere — teasing and tormenting”
