American Shakespeare Theater Kicks Off Summer Season
Friday, the American Shakespeare Center kicks off its summer repertoire. This season, you can see "Romeo and Juliet," "Return to the Forbidden Planet" or "All's Well that Ends Well."
The theater is also celebrating its 25th anniversary. With that, the cast adds a bit of a twist to the classic "Romeo and Juliet."
"We've got these wild, ultra-modern costumes inspired by Alexander McQueen and that kind of designer that is really out there and fun, and yet it's still incredibly true to the text," said Jim Warren, co-founder of American Shakespeare Center.
The theater will host events throughout the next year in honor of the milestone birthday.
Friday night's play starts at 7 p.m. at the Blackfriars Playhouse, and is followed by a party for the audience.
