Edge Media: Director Allegra Libonati Finds Fresh Insights in ‘Romeo and Juliet’

Edge Media: “Romeo and Juliet,” to me they are both incredibly serious and intelligent characters. They are the children of these two families that people underestimate in what they’re capable of and how they feel. I was looking for two performers that are, first of all, incredibly facile with the language because they speak a lot and there is a lot of very fast turns and virtuosic acting that is required to make these two characters spring off the page.
