Romeo and Juliet
By William Shakespeare

For the first time in its history, the Summer Festival goes off campus! Taking place in modern day Queens, Shakespeare’s classic love story is set against the backdrop of two first-generation American youths falling in love while their transplanted families, one Israeli Jews, the other Palestinian Muslims, continue their “ancient grudge” which “breaks to new mutiny” on the streets of Flushing.
