Call Me by Any Other Name… Just as SweetCall Me By Any Other Name…
Just as Sweet

A World Premiere Queer Deconstruction
of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet

Oct. 21–24, 2021

Adapted & Directed by Nigel Semaj
with new text by Jack Saleeby & Brayden Stallman

This explorative new adaptation steps outside of how we have typically viewed and experienced the story of Romeo and Juliet. By using inspirations from Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, Call Me By Any Other Name… Just As Sweet examines the role of fate and who gets to love, while reimagining the narrative and staking a claim for Queer storytelling.

Content Notice: This show includes depictions of violence and self-harm.
