Stage Designer Romeo and Juliet
Staten Island Shakespearean Theatre Company
The Staten Island Shakespearean Theatre Company (SIST) is presenting Romeo and Juliet this coming August, 2021. SIST will be presenting a modern rendition of Romeo and Juliet. The concept of the show will present North Shore versus South Shore; Liberal Versus Traditional; Blue Versus Red; Lower Class Versus Higher Class. For centuries, multiple families, friends, and communities have face tensions of differing beliefs. Despite a universal suffering during a global pandemic, it seemed that people became more divided than ever. The concept of this version of Romeo and Juliet is not just to reflect the community that is Staten Island; rather it is a reminder that we are all humans who love, hurt, and lose.
