The Functional Shoes, a New York City theatre company, presents their original indie-rock Shakespeare-inspired play ROMEO + JULIET + ANYBODYS June 6-10th at the 14th annual Cincinnati Fringe Festival.
ROMEO + JULIET + ANYBODYS takes the tragic love story you think you know by heart and rips it a new one. At the center is Anybodys, musical theatre’s most overlooked heroine, fighting for her glimpse of the spotlight and grappling with the reality that in most stories, “you ain’t somebody, you somebody’s girl.”
ROMEO + JULIET + ANYBODYS received a workshop production at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre in New York City in 2016. Featuring original live music, roller-skating, and the perfect white dress, this 50 minute mosh-pit-play is one show you won’t want to miss at the Cincy Fringe Fest.
Fun fact: The playwright is a native Ohioan and alum of The Ohio State University. Nearly a decade ago, she played Anybodys in her high school’s production of West Side Story. Now she returns to finally give this tomboy her say.
ROMEO + JULIET + ANYBODYS is performing at the Know Theatre for the Cincinnati Fringe Festival on June 6th at 8:30pm, June 8th at 6:30pm, and June 10th at 7pm. Tickets are available at: www.cincyfringe.com
