Romeo and Juliet is one of the most famous plays of all time.  And now the Minnesota Fringe Festival has invited five definitely different theatre companies to give it some special treatment.  On May 5th, 2008, Commedia Beauregard will combine efforts with Four Humours Theater, Zealots and Mystics, Rockstar Storytellers, and the Brave New Workshop to reinvent Shakespeare's classic love story.

Each company was assigned an act of the play to play around with.  We got the fourth act.  It is so much more than just "She gets the potion, she takes the potion, she doesn't wake up."  Trust us.  You'll have to see how we've translated this old-time fave for a slightly more modern audience.
