Through Feb. 27
Indiana Repertory Theatre
In the IRT’s new staging of the classic, the
language is still Shakespeare’s, but the setting is post-World War II America, the Montagues are white, and the Capulets
are black. Two new-to the-IRT actors, Chicago’s Claire Aubin Fort and Erik Hellman, play the title roles in a cast rounded
out by such familiar IRT faces as David Alan Anderson (“Looking Over the President’s Shoulder”), Ryan Artzberger
(“Rabbit Hole”) and Ben Tebbe (“A Christmas Carol”). Details here.
