Seussification of Romeo & Juliet
by Peter Bloedel
Directed by Engela Edwards

This is a funny 40-minute one-act play with a happy ending.

A whimsical reinvention of Shakespeare's love story, without all the tragedy.  It comes complete with fanciful costumes, rhymed couplets and creative wordplay -- similar to something Dr. Seuss might have written if he ever had his way with the script.

This play first premiered in 2001 and has since played in 41 US states, plus Australia, Canada, Japan, & South Africa.
