Last weekend, when Cary’s Koka Booth Amphitheatre gave William Shakespeare’s timeless 16th century tragedy, “Romeo and Juliet,” an American Civil War setting, a battle between the Blue and the Gray seemed to be in the offing, with Juliet and the Capulets clashing with Romeo and the Montagues. But nothing like that happened on closing night last Saturday. The cities of Verona and Mantua were redubbed Virginia and Maryland; and director Jerry Sipp retained the character of Prince Escalus (strutted and fretted by Brook North), who had powers of life and death over an unspecified portion of Old Virginny.
On Oct. 4-6 in Cary’s Koka Booth Amphitheatre, Team Montague and Team Capulet will square off once again for their epic family feud in a modernized community-theater presentation of “Romeo and Juliet,” produced by Deb Royals and directed by Jerry Sipp and starring 27-year-old Ira David Wood IV as Romeo. Originally set during the 14th century in Verona and Mantua, Italy, this late 16th century tragedy of star-crossed lovers by English dramatist William Shakespeare (1564-1616) will now unfold during the era of the American Civil War (1861-65) and be performed under the stars.
