Shakespeare in the Park... er... Garden - Romeo and Juliet
Shakespeare is in the air this October. DC's Folger Shakespeare Library is putting on a new production of Romeo and Juliet, and Downton Abbey's Julian Fellowes is releasing a new film version of the classic play. Come prepare to see these new productions at an outdoor viewing of the 1936 film starring Leslie Howard and Norma Shearer, which will kick off a month of Shakespeare programming.
