We invite you to join us for our 19th anniversary of performing this play about young lovers, feuding families and one Friar with good intentions.

Join the cast and crew members for a lively Question and Answer session on Sunday February 10 after the show!

THE SUPERBOWL, ROMEO AND JULIET AND YOU: While we are closed on February 3, there could be traffic challenges around the area of the Tavern that whole week/weekend. Saturday, February 2, an “NFL Honors” event will take place at the Fox Theatre which means a few blocks of Peachtree and some side streets will be shut down starting February 1.  Please keep yourself informed about street closures and traffic issues. MARTA will be running non-stop Feb 1-5, so we recommend taking that if possible.

Bardometer Rating

How difficult is this Shakespearean play to grasp? On a scale of 1 to 10.
What does rating this mean?

You may already know the story and what happens at the end. But even if you don’t, the play is light and the plot is easy to follow. Limited violence, limited bawdiness (see below). There are very few things – historical, religious, or political – that you need to know ahead of time. Just enjoy!

A note about bawdiness in Shakespeare: It exists. Despite what your English teacher taught you, Shakespeare wrote some pretty saucy lines and they pop up from time to time. While there is never any nudity on stage, our actors are trained to make the text clear. If we feel a show contains a plethora of Graphic Elizabethan Poetry (or is very bloody/violent/triggering) we will put that disclaimer in the blurb about the show. It won’t happen often. If this Bardometer lists a play as a 1 or 2, you can rest assured that it is an appropriate show for kids under ten.
