Jacklyn Glavanov Ms. Chong ENG101 Friday, November 27 Page to Stage Casting Director Romeo & Juliet “Capulet’s Disgrace” William Shakespeare has created the devastating romance “Romeo & Juliet”. The classic play written in the late fifteen-hundreds is about star crossed lovers who can never be together based on their families history. Their have been several films created from this play from as early as 1908, up to the most recent in 2013.
