“Thus with a kiss, I die...” 
Romeo's final words in Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers masterpiece will unfold in a passionate production by The Media Theatre from January 25th through February 19th.

As part of the Theatre's Broadway Series, this is their first Shakespeare classic and will be directed by Bill Van Horn, who last year directed the popular “Peter and the Starcatcher” at the Walnut Street Theatre.

Peter Pan in the Walnut’s “Starcatcher” production – and Jersey Shore native -- Brandon O’ Rourke, will work with Van Horn again as he takes the lead role of Shakespeare’s teenager in love in “Romeo and Juliet.” 
Under the  iconic Media Theatre sign is a photo of the balcony
in Verona, Italy where Juliet supposedly was wooed by Romeo.

Lexi Gwynn, who played lead roles for Jesse Cline in “The Miracle Worker” and “To Kill A Mockingbird,” returns to appear opposite O’ Rourke as Juliet. 

Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare early in his career about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families.

It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime. Today, the title characters are regarded as archetypal young lovers -- and were the inspiration for West Side Story.
