Re: “Crazy Love


Thank you for your review of the Cal Shakes Romeo and Juliet (6/3/09), to which we offer a small corrective. Contrary to your belief that the production that opened on May 30 was unadulterated, Shakespeare's text was indeed heavily cut - it just didn't look like it because director, Jonathan Moscone worked so hard together with myself and text coach, Nancy Carlin, to keep in all of the rhythm of the text as well as the passages that matter. Romeo and Juliet is 25850 words long, and Cal Shakes cut the play to to 19615 words.
