"See, how she leans her cheek upon her hand!
O that I were a glove upon that hand,
that I might touch that cheek!"
"Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight!/ For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night."
"O! she doth teach the torches to burn bright"
"O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name.
Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love
And I'll no longer be a Capulet."
Phrases so familiar...they were echoed again for all to hear last week during a Shakespeare festival in an outside venue that we attended. However, this Romeo and Juliet was unlike any I had seen before. It was Shakespeare but set in modern times. An interesting twist on a centuries old love story. Whether the lovers are in the 17th century or the 21st...it is amazing how the issues of families, traditions and rival gangs ring true when it comes to relationships.
