"Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers are back, launching the most ambitious version yet of New Theatre's annual summer celebration of the bard... a significant contribution to South Florida's theatrical landscape... Cecilia Torres' giddy teenaged Juliet, Annemaria Rajala's striking Lady Capulet and Kimberly Daniel's warmly funny Nurse mix elegance with a lacy loveliness. M. Anthony Reimer's subtle, emotionally effective sound design underscores the tragedy of the young lovers... good comedic work of Daniel and Gene Bunge... subdued naturalism of most of the younger actors, including Torres and Losada... grand, heightened work of Steve Gladstone... Stephen S. Neal... Arnaldo Carmouze... Nicholas Richberg... commanding... bawdily amusing... deliciously stylish..." - Christine Dolen, Miami Herald

"Rafael de Acha opens his summer-long Shakespeare Project with a slam-bang presentation of Romeo and Juliet... the show erupts from the starting gate like a rambunctious colt... it's never been easier to compare the Capulets and Montagues with the Jets and the Sharks.. dressed up for prom night by costumer Estela Vrancovich. Newcomer Cecilia Torres is both convincing and beguiling as the young Juliet, driven more by a sense of her own individuality than girlish infatuation... veteran actress Kimberly Daniel... emerges as the most effective performer... Daniel keeps the play's heart, soul and humanity from being trampled by the onrush of seemingly inevitable catastrophe." - Jack Zink, Sun Sentinel

"A resplendent Romeo and Juliet opens the Shakespeare Project... an ambitious summer-long festival now onstage at New Theatre... Rafael de Acha's direction is sensitive and swift... Euriamis Losada's irresistible Romeo... Kimberly Daniel's humorous and heartbreaking Nurse reveal gleaming facets of the kaleidoscope that is Shakespeare... Losada... is a sexy, fiery, impossibly young Romeo... Daniel's bawdiness never strays into vulgarity, and her discovery of Juliet's body is heartrending... The poetry of Shakespeare's words sings when these actors speak, and the drama is well served... The fights, choreographed by associate director Ricky J. Martinez, are brilliantly staged..." - Octavio Roca, New Times

It's play time for New Theatre's annual Shakespeare Project
