juliet is a punk rocker...

Like Sid and Nancy?
Dig Shakespeare?
Live in New York City?

You MUST check out BEN, the punk skewed version of Romeo & Juliet being performed at The Ace of Clubs for only 10 performances (information below).

It's an extremely physical, sometimes funny, always heartfelt, and completely entertaining take on the Bard, and a hell of a lot more enjoyable than Kenneth Branagh's HBO disaster As You Like It.

My childhood pal Brian stars as Romeo, and his performance is much more intense than the last stage play I saw him do. Albeit he was, like, 8 years old and it was The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
