Bare Theatre is known for stretching Shakespeare (and regional audiences) by producing abridged, cirque, steampunk, and buskers' treatments of the Bard in recent years. Director Lucinda Danner Gainey takes this long-running company through yet another change-up by staging Shakespeare's most popular play, Romeo and Juliet, in the playwright's own time. Barbara Raddatz's Elizabethan costumes and sundry weekend matinee show times, outdoors at the Forest Theatre, place us in a milieu like the one playgoers encountered in the roofless Globe Theatre in the seventeenth century. In the title roles, newcomers Christopher McBennett and McKenna Waldron anchor a production in which the conflicts between two upper-class families of Verona become a zero-sum game from which no one is spared, including the children. Michael Parker and Amanda Lee Scherle lead the house of Capulet; Doug Kapp and Ann Forsthoefel head the Montagues. —Byron Woods
