Chicago Tribune- Recommended

"...I saw it with a group of middle-school students at a weekday matinee, which is perhaps the best target audience imaginable, given that Juliet isn't quite 14 herself. But for all audiences (there are three more Saturday public performances), the fast pace works well as a reminder of just how quickly the tale moves from a youthful crush to a full-blown tragedy, beyond the power of the youngsters to control."

Around The Town Chicago- Highly Recommended

"...Chicago Shakespeare Theatre’s production of “Short Shakespeare! Romeo and Juliet” was charming, engaging and oh, so sad. I’m not embarrassed to say that at the end I had tears in my eyes. With Shakespeare’s drama about teen angst, murder and mayhem still required reading in most high schools, I knew there would be school groups in the audience, but I was happy to see groups of young people as well as families in the audience. I was even more happy to see those young people stand up and cheer at the end of the play, too! "
