Romeo and Juliet
2004 – The Season of Star-Crossed Lovers
Cast & Crew
|Unknown||John Paul Connolly|
|Composer||Claire Van Kampen|
As a Globe Steward, I saw this production a few times but can’t fill in all the casting from memory. I hope this wiil do as a stub – Bette Bourne Nurse / Tom Burke Romeo / James Garnon Mercutio / Kananu Kirimi Juliet / John McEnery Friar Laurence. AS A GENERAL OBSERVATION which you may wish to note in passing, and then edit OUT, I’m intrigued by the way flops are quietly dropped from the Archives asap. The next Globe production of this play actually had Stewards planning their Duty schedules in order to AVOID watching the show by manoeuvring for an “outside position”. As I recall, there were three redeeming features viz. James Garnon as Mercutio, Jack Farthing as BENVOLIO (God save the mark) and the music. OUCH.
