Ohio Northern University to present ‘Romeo and Juliet’

Ohio Northern University’s Freed Center for the Performing Arts will present “Romeo and Juliet” by National Players in the Stambaugh Theatre on Saturday, Jan. 19, at 7:30 p.m.

This production of “Romeo and Juliet” is National Players at its best: fresh, contemporary and visceral. This rendering of star-crossed lovers is set to the pulsing rhythms of contemporary digital society, where everything is shared and nothing connects, and takes the play back to its source while bringing it viciously into the here and now.
