Shakespeare like you've never seen
The critically acclaimed, New York- and London-based Aquila Theatre returns to Asheville with this re-imagined, invigorating production. While the classic tale of two star-crossed lovers is arguably one of the best known of all of The Bard’s plays, Aquila’s striking and moving adaption of Romeo and Juliet takes the viewer’s breath away with a few special twists, thanks to the innovative direction of Artistic Director, Desiree Sanchez.
