In April, I had the pleasure of seeing Romeo and Juliet at the Citadel Theatre. The iconic love story of two teenage star-crossed lovers made me curious to mix Shakespearian language with what I imagined today’s texting teens might create. This is what I came up with.
“O Romeo, Romeo. Wherefore art thou Romeo?”
“If I profane with my unworthy hand this holy shrine
The gentle sin is this:
My lips two blushing pilgrims, ready stand
To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.”
“And all my fortunes at thy foot I’ll lay
And follow thee my lord throughout the world.”
“Call me but love,
And I’ll be new baptis’d.”
“Good night, good night!
Parting is such sweet sorrow.
That I shall say good night till it be morrow.”
