O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?

He’s in a Pittsburgh Citipark near you.

Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks presents Romeo and Juliet, the infamous play about the original star-cross’d lovers and their tragic fate. The theatre company is celebrating their 9th season of presenting a different Shakespearian play each year completely free to the public.  This year, they put a unique spin on the familiar story by having the audience members pick sides at the beginning of the performance. You get to choose if you belong to the House of Montague (Team Romeo) or the House of Capulet (Team Juliet). You then follow the perspective of the House you belong to, eventually joining together in the scenes that are shared by both Romeo and Juliet.

All performances are FREE to the public and start at 2:00PM. You are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair.
