Romeo and Juliet

Are you looking for something nice in English? If your answer is affirmative then read further!

The Theater of Oklahoma presents in the Kaaitheater its version of the best known dramatic play of Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet. Don’t worry, it isn't a long and tiring version! Characters are asking to tell the story of Romeo and Juliet with their own words. But they do not have the same memories so that new plots and even characters are invented.

The play takes place on 16th and 18th October at 20.30 in the Kaaitheater in Brussel. It's possible to book your ticket on the website of the theater. Three of us are already planning to go on 16th. If you want to join us, don't hesitate!

This play seems great fun; it's a shame I can't join you…

It's a shame you haven't mentioned this: "This season the group will present two well-known stories: Rambo: First Blood (watched by millions of people all over the world and flogged to death in countless sequels) and Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare’s most popular play." Maybe this re-enacting of the movie can be interesting as well.

Hi Simon!
You now...Rambo is not especially our cup of tea :-)
I hope you are enjoying your stay in Utrecht.

Hello Louise,

Yeah I'm fine in Utrecht. The city and the University are really great, but I miss Belgium and everyone in Namur… But I guess it's part of the game.

As to Rambo, I've never watched a single film of the franchise… :S shame on me! (And this summer I wachted the Rocky movies for the first time.)

If someone happens to be interested by a Rambo parody, check out this extract from Weird Al Yankovic's UHF
