Violent sword fights, secret love, and a tearful finale. On January 30 and 31, the Kravis Center welcomes Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare’s classic tale of doomed love between winsome teenagers and their rivaling families who refuse to play nice. Aquila Theatre’s production stays true to The Bard’s original script but with a few exceptions.
