Saturday 8/05/17, 3pm - 8/06/17, , Parkman Bandstand, Boston Common
One of Greater Boston's most beloved traditions, Commonwealth Shakespeare Company's Free Shakespeare On the Common takes up residence once again with Shakespeare’s drama, Romeo & Juliet proving that the power of love triumphs over divisions and differences. The Capulet and Montague families have been engaged in a multi-generational feud, causing much distress and havoc in the city of Verona; but when young Romeo, son of the Montagues, meets Juliet, the daughter of the Capulets, their immediate love blossoms and accepts no barriers, with tragic results.
Tuesday – Saturday performances at 8pm; Sundays at 7pm (Off Mondays). There will be one 3pm matinee performance on Saturday, August 5.
Join us on Friday, August 4 from 6:30pm-7pm for a family-friendly demonstration on how actors safely create the illusion of realistic stage combat. This session is appropriate for all ages. Ben & Jerry's will be sampling ice cream from 5pm-6pm.
