Shakespeare’s most iconic tale of young love presented in a bilingual adaptation by Karen Zacarías. Director KJ Sanchez returns to the Bruns after a national tour of Cal Shakes’ 2018 hit Quixote Nuevo to imagine these star-crossed lovers as two daughters before the backdrop of Alta California, as California was known during Spanish Colonial and Mexican rule. Originally scheduled for Cal Shakes’ 2020 Season but cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the production returns with many of the original cast members.
