Professor Brian Sutton’s “Searching for Romeo” earns slot at 2014 New York Musical Theatre Festival
Associate Professor of Humanistic Studies Brian Sutton’s original play “Searching for Romeo” has been given a full-performance slot at the 2014 New York Musical Theatre Festival. This July it will be performed by a largely professional (Actors’ Equity) cast. Sutton’s tale reimagines Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” from the perspective of the “losers” — Romeo’s former beloved, Rosaline; and Juliet’s rejected suitor, Paris. Sutton wrote the play, music and lyrics.
