Romeo & Juliet

Romeo & Juliet

"Romeo, oh Romeo, Where'fore art thou Romeo"?

Right here at ye olde Castro Theatre. And we're having a ball to celeb-rate as Marc Huestis presents ROMEO & JULIET with Leonard Whiting ("Romeo') Live In-Person! This kick off to the 20th Anniversary of "Marc Huestis presents" at the Castro will have a masked ball theme overflowing with romance for Valentine's Day. It is also a rare public appearance by Romeo & Juliet star Leonard Whiting, who caused a sensation when he starred in Zeffirelli's all time 1968 classic- nominated for 4 Academy Awards including Best Picture and winning 2 (Cinematography & Costume Design).

Romeo (Leonard Whiting) will jet in from London & have his moment to shine in a q&a about the making of this classic film. Also featured will be tribute performances, rare film clips a Romeo & Juliet look-a-like and Best Mask contest. Costumes are encouraged. Look for surprise celebrity guests, and an autograph signing with Whiting (VIP tix holders at 6:30. General Signing after the Event).

Huestis originally presented ROMEO & JULIET with Olivia Hussey Live in 2008 and it was a HUGE hit, selling out the 1400 seat Castro Theatre one week prior to the engagement. Here is an excerpt of that show on YouTube and it has over half a million hits.

Roger Ebert called this version of "Romeo & Juliet" "the most exciting film of Shakespeare ever made."
