go see Synetic Theater's Romeo and Juliet
This past Sunday afternoon I saw Synetic Theater's Romeo and Juliet at the Rosslyn Spectrum Theater. It's wordless Shakespeare, like Synetic's performance of Macbeth last year. But the scream of Juliet (Courtney Pauroso) when she discovers her dead Romeo (Ben Cunis) is the loudest scream you've never heard. Overall, heart-achingly enjoyable. Romeo and Juliet, stupid kids. Lucky kids. Go see it, but don't kill yourself when it ends. Playing through March 8.
