“As I watched the outpouring of passion that came from the young survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida – as a person living in the world, as a father, and as a citizen -I was struck by how fierce, mission driven, articulate, and fearless these young people are. Romeo & Juliet is a play about how old systems fail young people. How an older generation fails a younger one. It is the most passionate love story of all time, and now is the right time for ACT to tell it.”
