A Commedia Romeo and Juliet
Faction of Fools’ A Commedia Romeo and Juliet is a uniquely entertaining version of the Bard’s tale of star-crossed lovers. Shakespeare’s story of squabbling fathers, poetry-spouting lovers, and dim-witted servants draws heavily on the conventions of Commedia dell’Arte. By utilizing masks and physical characterizations from Commedia dell’Arte, Faction of Fools puts the comedy back into the Bard’s tale, allowing the tragic turns to cut all the more deeply.
Faction of Fools is the 2012 Helen Hayes Recipient of the John Aniello Award for Outstanding Emerging Theater Company.
