What is there to say about Romeo and Juliet that hasn’t already been said? It’s arguably the most famous play in existence: not only has it been performed countless times across the world for centuries, there are also a fair number of new interpretations of, or shows inspired by, Shakespeare’s famous tragedy.

From West Side Story to &Juliet – you don’t have to look far to see Romeo and Juliet’s influence on contemporary theatre.

American playwright Rachel Garnet’s Starcrossed – already critically acclaimed in the US and now making its UK debut at London’s gorgeous Wilton’s Music Hall – is another excellent addition to the canon.
