“When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.”
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
Perhaps no more glorious language has been written than that which appears in Romeo and Juliet. Celebrate the Bard’s 450th birthday with Shore Shakespeare‘s production of this timeless favorite, this weekend at Adkins Arboretum.
Saturday’s performance begins at 6 p.m.; an encore follows on Sunday at 3. Bring a blanket or chair, a picnic, a bottle of wine, and a thirst for Shakespeare’s immortal tale of star-cross’d lovers. Meals from the Lily Pad Cafe may also be reserved, but reservations must be made by tomorrow, May 28.
Loving and fighting, dancing and dying, soaring poetry and bawdy humor…all amid the glorious beauty of a late-spring evening. What are you waiting for?
