I went to see an actual play at an actual theatre this past Thursday. I know, right?
I've always been a fan of the play Romeo and Juliet and know the story very well. I've read this Shakespeare play three times on my own accord (nerd alert). Needless to say I was pretty excited when a school assignment lead me straight into Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre's doors to watch the classic tragedy of the two star-crossed lovers.
I was totally impressed with Gareth Potter who played Romeo's friend, Mercutio. He was so obscene and provacative that he had the audience out-right laughing. It's refreshing to know that what some may stereotype as a dry art can actually make you laugh in your seat.
The show runs until December 17. Those of you who are interested in going to see Rom & Jul can check out the website for it and find out how you can get tickets. There are also some really interesting shows coming up and I recommend you check them out!
