Harrison Bryan winning playwright for “Romeo’s Jules”

The talented cast included Evan Gambardella as Romeo and Casey A. Tucker as Juliet with a brief cameo appearance by Dan Moldovan.

About the Play:
[SPOILER ALERT: Romeo and Juliet Kill Themselves in Act 5!] But is that really how their story ends? In this raunchy contemporary exploration of their post-death relationship, the star-crossed-lovers are asked to handle the truth of their entire existence…but will the unknown forces at hand even let them?
