EMMA RICE’S PENULTIMATE SHAKESPEARE PRODUCTION AT THE GLOBE.

EMMA RICE’S PENULTIMATE SHAKESPEARE PRODUCTION AT THE GLOBE. In addition to directing Twelfth Night, Emma Rice produced another Shakespeare play at the Globe in her farewell season after she had resigned. The play was Romeo and Juliet, directed by Daniel Kramer. Stig Abell described some of the features of the production in a review in the TLS (May 5, 2017): “… the Capulet party is soundtracked by Juliet’s father yodeling ‘YMCA” by Village People…..Capulet walks around with a dog played by a man…who barks and scampers…the stage resembles an aerobics class for the middle-aged at several points….” At the end of the play, “Romeo takes his gun and kills his mother and father and the Capulets.”

  1. I hope everyone who was in attendance of that production knew what they were getting into. I would be so disappointed and angry if I went to the Globe expecting something…less fringe, shall we say?…and being presented with this.
