Description Grades 10-12. Set in modern-day Verona Beach, California, this neon-tinged vision of the Bard’s star-crossed tragedy casts the Montagues and Capulets as two rival gangs. Retaining Shakespeare's dialogue, Luhrmann’s opulent 20th-century update bursts with passion, music, and romance and is sure to spark dialogue and debate in any classroom. Ticket price includes pre-show classroom workshop with a BAM teaching artist, study guide, post-show discussion, and Q&A.
