Just Like Riding A Bike

When we announced our 2009 season you may have noticed that our very own Jon Moscone will be directing Romeo & Juliet. What you may not have realized is that the last time he took on Shakespeare for our stage was back in 2006 when he directed As You Like It.

That’s right folks. 2006. How does he feel about his return to the world of iambic pentameter? He’s excited. Here at the office we’re hearing him float around ideas like looking for young actors to play the title roles. And by young, I really mean age appropriate since Romeo & Juliet were teenagers after all.

Every production goes through a period of transformation while the director and designers research and explore the work. Then you cast the show and when rehearsals begin another series of transformations occur as the actors bring each character to life. So there’s no telling what the final outcome will be.

But the man isn’t artistic director of a Shakespeare theater for nothing. This should be a fun ride.
