Realistic and Action Packed
Review of Romeo y Julieta presented by Seattle Shakespeare Company
Written by Peter Vinn during an Arts Criticism workshop at Glacier Middle School
The play Romeo and Juliet is about two lovers who want to be with each other but can't because of their families. In the play Romeo y Julieta they do a lot of sword fighting. One of them pretended to kill herself, but when the other found out, they killed themselves. They want to be with each other but their families had a rivalry so they couldn't be together.
I didn’t like the play as much because it was pretty confusing. It was confusing because there was a lot of talking and I could barely hear them. Also, the story in general was confusing when I could hear them. I liked how they were still going even when it got loud because it shows how focused they were into the play.
I liked the sword fighting. It was interesting. In the play they made it realistic when the knife went through them. When they were fighting, somebody got stabbed and they made it seem realistic. This is important because it shows how realistic it is. My friends were even confused if it was a real knife.
