"Director Michael Michetti's fascinating, multi-racial period concept makes a sumptuous showcase for the brand new Boston Court Theatre, and his leads re to die for.  As sensuous as they are sentient, as ardent as they are articulate, this is a pair of lovable lovers we can fall for almost as quickly as they do.  Michetti has conjured a subtle, fascinating historical milieu."   -LA Times

"A hip-gyrating, feverish Romeo and Juliet unequivocally announcing the arrival of a major neew venue for local theater...The kind of balcony-swaying, no-seat-belt ride that you dream of seeing more often in LA."   -LA Weekly

"Impressively evocative."   -Daily Variety

"A first-class version of a classic...a theater lover's delight...Fresh, well played, and genuinely entertaining, this Shakespeare would be worth seeing anywhere."   -Pasadena Star News

"A brave and inventive interpretation of the great classic.  The idea is brilliant and Michetti's remarkable vision is gorgeously aided by a crack design team."   -Entertainment Today
