COMEDY. In order to save the Richmond Theater from being torn down, the summer production of Romeo and Juliet needs to be a huge financial success. A wacky, Diet Coke-addicted director who just produced a disco version of Moby Dick is hired to direct the production, which features a motley cast of high school actors. The director is certain that a modern Mardi Gras-inspired Romeo and Juliet set in New Orleans and complete with plenty of fur and feathers will ensure box office success. But when the needed theater supplies are either out of stock or get lost in the mail, the cast and crew are forced to use basic sets, props, and costumes and allow the beauty of Shakespeare’s language to take center stage. This hilarious comedy is a fun way to introduce Romeo and Juliet to student actors.
