Wherefore Art Thou?

Some people think it's sad that Romeo and Juliet died. So young, so dead. But does anyone want a drama queen like Juliet raising kids? They'd be all, "I want the Queen Elizabeth Barbie, NOW!," and she'd be all, "I can't take this whining. I'm gonna run over to my drug pusher priest." Ultimately, the little turds would be raised by that conniving nurse woman, anyway. And Romeo wouldn't even be able to take the fam out to a nice casual dinner at Applebee's without running into some Capulet jerk and starting a fight in the parking lot about the Montagues' favorite sizzlin' appetizer. Remember that when you start to shed a tear at the Aquila Theatre Company's production of Romeo and Juliet 7:30 p.m. Monday at Bass Performance Hall, 4th and Calhoun Streets in Fort Worth. Tickets are $22.50 to $45. Call 1-877-212-4280 or visit basshall.com.
