The Lost Story of Verona's Forbidden Love

A New Musical


Within the world of Romeo and Juliet, there is another story of forbidden love. In this bold reimagining, what begins as the sparks of hatred between Tybalt and Mercutio ignites into a burning love. But will that love be enough to conquer the darkness that is suffocating Verona? Or will their fates forever fade into smoke?
