How Art Thou?
Romeo and Juliet, one of the most well-known stories about forbidden love, has been adapted for the stage and film countless times. Each time you have seen it, you might have wondered, Does a rose by any other name really smell as sweet? From today through October 13, youll be able to inhale and enjoy the Classical Theatre of Harlems interpretation of the story, a rendition that will surely make you a fan of its culturally resplendent aroma.
Since 1999, the group has been garnering acclaim for its interpretations of African-American classics such as August Wilsons Ma Raineys Black Bottom and Richard Wrights Native Son. With its version of Romeo and Juliet, CTH has added a little hip-hop to the romantic tragedy, and some racial tension to the illicit love. But Shakespearean purists shouldnt fret; the troupe of long-term theater professionals has maintained the poetic vibe that makes the story so remarkable. See for yourself tonight at 8:00 in the Studio Theater at the Carnival Center for the Performing Arts, 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. Tickets cost $25.
