I was down and in need of catharsis, so I picked up Private Romeo on Hal Duncan’s recommendation, and it was exactly right. (And the ending is not quite what you’re used to.) This is everything Shakespeare should be, naturalistic and raw, forcing you to listen to the meaning as much as to the words. Seriously, go read what Mr. Duncan has to say, then watch this.
I really want to show it to my boyfriend once he gets back from his family vacation.
