Nominated for “Most Memorable Modern Updates & Adaptations of 2020” by New York Shakespeare, Lady Capulet, a prequel to Romeo & Juliet, follows the journey of Rose from country girl to matriarch, navigating her repression and power in 16th century Verona when family, social status, and gender determine everything.

Featuring Jianzi Colón-Soto, Preston Fox, Andrew Dunn, Marlena Holman, and Jefferson Reardon.

With original music by Graham Russell of Air Supply

Lady Capulet, a Henley Rose Playwright Competition for Women 2017 Finalist, was written by Melissa Bell and is directed by Emily Gallagher, Founder and Artistic Director of Barefoot Shakespeare.

Lady Capulet is a co-production of Barefoot Shakespeare Company and CreateTheater, an online theatre company founded by producer Cate Cammarata.

Featured in “Best Men’s Stage Monologues of 2020” published by Smith & Krause.

Lady Capulet Reviews:

“Tantalizing”… “Juicy” says, and Time Out said: “Melissa Bell reimagines the life of Juliet’s mother in the years before the events of Romeo & Juliet in this classical prequel.”
