LiveArtDC is bringing the Capital Fringe festival close to home. We will host a production of Shakespeare’s most famous love story, Romeo and Juliet, at the Georgia Avenue bar — re-imagined with beer, flip cup and audience participation.
From the press release:
“LiveArtDC will host the DC premiere of Three Day Hangover’s “R+J: Star-Cross’d Death Match” for the 2014 Capital Fringe Festival at Petworth’s finest watering hole, DC Reynolds — which has won the best happy hour prize in the annual City Paper Best of DC Readers’ Poll for two years running. From rap battles, dance-offs and beer-filled flip cup competitions, the boozy retelling of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” brings the audience into the middle of theater’s best-known family feud.
