[NoHo Arts District, CA] – The City of West Hollywood and Classical Theatre Lab proudly present Edmond Rostand’s The Romantics directed by Suzanne Hunt, produced by Suzanne Hunt and Alexander Wells, running September 11-25.
In this comic reversal of Romeo and Juliet, a mother and neighboring father concoct a fake family feud to make their son and daughter think they are ill-fated lovers and fall in love. Their scheme succeeds, but now the “feuding” parents need to ﬁnd a way to reconcile so that the couple can wed. With no expense spared, the parents hire the handsome rogue, Straforel, to stage a fake abduction. Percinet “rescues” Sylvette from her “abductors,” wedding plans are made, and the wall between the parents’ neighboring properties is torn down. However, it doesn’t take long before the two families realize, that in their case, walls make good neighbors. This wildly funny and entertaining comedy is ﬁlled with live music, sword ﬁghts and period costumes. The play is the basis for the 1960 musical The Fantastics.
The cast features the talents of Johnny Austen, Maaren Edvard, Carlo Figlio, Maegan McConnell, Katie McKewin, Donald Wayne and Alexander Wells.
Production Team includes producers Suzanne Hunt and Alexander Wells, Katie McKewin (Assistant Director/Movement Choreographer) and Garth Pillsbury (Photographer).
