Romeo and Juliet

My selection for a play this month was Romeo and Juliet.  I admit to being a total sucker for this particular tragedy even if there is no freaking way that Romeo and Juliet ever really loved one another.  Sorry, but Romeo loves Rosaline one minute, sees Juliet, and all of a sudden loves her.  Love doesn't work that way, but guess what, this is a drama-a tragedy; love works that way here, and there story is the epitome of love.  The hardest part of reading this play is reading Shakespearean English.  However, the real key to that is remembering that this isn't just a play, it's poetry.  That makes it even more fun!
