In a Broadway Minute Reviews National Theatre's 'Romeo and Juliet'
Over the centuries, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet has seen many theatrical revisions, but it's likely never been produced with pandemic restrictions and for a global audience. The National Theatre's new version started as a play. It ended specifically as a film, and it's now streaming. Theater critic Howard Shapiro reviews the production this week on In a Broadway Minute, Friday (4/30) at 8 am and Saturday (5/1) at 10 am.
