Transcript

The timeless tragic tale of two doomed young lovers and the loss of a young indie music star — the combination seems fitting when put like that. But that Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is being presented with songs by Jeff Buckley might be a little more challenging. The Old Globe is currently presenting "The Last Goodbye," a production that uses Shakespeare's language and Buckley's songs to tell the story of the star-crossed lovers from Verona.
