Shakespeare Meets Buckley In ‘The Last Goodbye’
Thursday, October 17, 2013
Aired 10/17/13 on KPBS Midday Edition.
Talisa Friedman, Actor, plays Juliet in The Last Goodbye
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.
