Staff Reviews

Romeo and Juliet, retold from Tybalt's perspective, and filtered through hip-hop culture and samurai flicks. Wimberly's dialogue matches the tone and style of the original perfectly, even when one of his characters is giving tips on how to eat a bomb-pop suggestively.

— From Graham's picks


PRINCE OF CATS is the B side to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, played at an eighties block party in a NY where underground sword dueling blossomed alongside hip-hop, punk, disco, and no wave. It's a deconstruction of Romeo and Juliet's romantic meta narrative focussing on the minor players with Tybalt at the center. RONALD WIMBERLY's critically-acclaimed first work, returns with a new cover.
