× About the Show

The People Vs. Friar Laurence, The Man Who Killed Romeo and Juliet is a musical comedy telling the story of Romeo and Juliet from a new perspective. By Ron West and Phil Swann, the story shows Friar Laurence behind bars, and charged for the 'murder' of the two young lovers. As the trial progresses mayhem and silliness abound with laugh out loud bits, catchy songs, and scenes equal parts Vaudeville and Bard.

Content Advisory: strong language, mature themes and content including violence and suicide. For mature audiences only.
