R & J (the web series)
By William Shakespeare
Directed by John Robert Hurley

(New York, NY) Ready Set Go Theatre Company (RSG) presents the renowned story of the two star-crossed lovers through a unique 10 episode web series. Tailored for the screen, all the episodes for R & J (the web series) will be released on October 31, 2014, online at www.readysetgotheatre.com and their YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUmlFsBdVNFz1gWqAlwcc2g).

In this gritty, daring adaptation of Shakespeare’s timeless Romeo & Juliet, Fair Verona becomes New York City, a slaughterhouse wherein two rival butcher families, Montague and Capulet, battle for ultimate dominance. Montague’s Romeo (Andreas Damm) and Capulet’s Juliet (Jessica Ranville) meet at a Capulet party by the famous Boathouse on the Lullwater of the Lake in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, and fall deeply for one another. This destined meeting releases the power of love, for better and for worse.

RSG believes that the internet is an extension of the Elizabethan theater, and proudly makes the celebrated story of Juliet and her Romeo accessible online. Adapted for screen by John Robert Hurley, this web series becomes RSG’s second release of a Shakespeare web series. Their first web series, Othello, was selected for the Catskill Film and Video Festival and was used for various educational purposes, such as the Catskill High School. Continuously thriving to make the classics available to a new generation of theatre and film enthusiasts, RSG is committed to use traditional techniques and modern media to create productions and materials focused on making Shakespeare a vital part of the modern classroom. R & J (the web series) will have lesson plans included for every episode, and teachers will have all the information available for free when they contact RSG.
