An Adaptive Display of Theater

Review of Romeo y Julieta presented by Seattle Shakespeare Company

Written by Anthyme Nguyen during an Arts Criticism workshop at Glacier Middle School


Have you ever loved someone so much that your family disapproves of it? Well, Romeo y Julieta is a play about two families who have been fighting for a long time. The two main protagonists are from the two opposing families but they find out they love each other. The families do not agree with each other so they brawl it out. What will Romeo and Julieta do when their families hate each other?

In my opinion, the play Romeo y Julieta was really well adapted and acted by the cast. Romeo y Julieta is a great play because the acting was good and switching between English and Spanish was easy to understand. The acting showed the love between Romeo and Juliet while showing how much love meant to them. Also, switching between the two languages makes it easy to understand if you do not speak English. The great acting was on point throughout the play.

Another way the theme was portrayed was when you can see the love between Romeo and Julieta throughout the entire play. The romance between Romeo and Julieta was really well displayed throughout the whole play. You can see how much they loved each other from the way they were acting when they had kissing and romantic scenes. This shows us how much Romeo and Julieta meant to each other. Overall, the play Romeo y Julieta performed by The Seattle Shakespeare Company was really well displayed and acted. It is worth watching since they are adaptive by switching between languages, making it really easy to understand.
