"The story of Romeo and Juliet takes place at a time when the stakes for living are higher and people are not afraid of death," says Steblay. "Fighting is visceral, tense and real. They love hard, fight hard, live hard, dance hard, play hard -- and die hard."
The Cromulent Shakespeare Company breathes new life into classic plays with a creative and ensemble-based approach. Since its start in 1996, the company has committed to "Embiggen the Bard," and has performed all around the land of lakes in parks and small theaters. In 2000, Cromulent added new works and original adaptations to their performance repertoire.
Recent Cromulent productions include: Merry Wives of Windsor, Julius Caesar, Troilus and Cressida, Hamlet, Wyrd Sisters, The Tempest, Richard III and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
