"Dromgoole is blessed with a smashing pair of young lovers. Adetomiwa Edun's Romeo is fresh, cheeky, light on his feet and full of the ebullience of young love... The production's secret weapon is Ellie Kendrick...delivers the jewelled verse with a lovely purity and directness. I particularly admired Rawiri Paratene's impassioned Friar Lawrence, Ian Redford as a Capulet, and Tom Stuart's hilarious performance as a socially inept Count Paris." (The Daily Telegraph)

OK....then, there is attractive and effective acting. The language of Shakespear is always special. A period production is less common these days. The audiance has a chance to see what it may have been like in 1600 or so.
Is there more? Does it stick in the mind? Does it open the mind to something new (well, of course, every reading and performance of Shakespear does that)...possibly not.
I wish they had the full set of plays on DVD, I guess I'll just have to wait!
