Here’s a clip of the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company asking a group of teenagers to tell the story of “Romeo and Juliet” in their own words. This is what they had to say…
BROADWAY – Annoyed that you can’t get to the West End to see Cinderella film stars Richard Madden, Lily James and Derek Jacobi in Romeo and Juliet? Never fear, Kenneth Branagh and Rob Ashford’s interpretation of the Bard’s classic, set in 1950s Italy, will broadcast to more than 1,200 movie theaters worldwide live from the Garrick Theatre on July 7. “I really think it’s so exciting to see Shakespeare on film and to watch plays displaced from their original setting into a new medium,” said James in a statement. “I can’t wait!” The production is scheduled to play through August 13.
Here’s your first look at Lily as Juliet in Kenneth Branagh’s play “Romeo and Juliet”. The play runs at the Garrick Theatre from 25 May to 13 August.
