Juliet Replaces Romeo's
Austin's original restaurant row getting new Italian eatery
DAILY Food  January 27, 2015, by Virginia B. Wood
"...Established restaurant spaces with shady, attractive patios and their own parking lots don't stay empty for long in Austin's white hot hospitality market. The former Romeo's location will soon be home to a new restaurant named with a wink and a nod to the former tenant...."

Romeo Talk Back
Tripping on E
DAILY Screens  August 18, 2008, by Kimberley Jones
"...Luhrmann knew what he was doing when he made Romeo clutch a journal, and when I called him a wannabe poet, I didn't mean that as a compliment. You remember that when the play opens, Romeo's lovesick over Rosalind, and those pretty words he's penning are the mark of a teenage drama queen too quick to moan how he'll just die if he doesn't get the girl..."

First place, the 13th Annual 'Austin Chronicle' Short Story Contest
Books Story  February 18, 2005, by Robert Byington
"...But here's what Romeo tells me this morning, he says he's been screwing guys and gurls alike for three years, and sometimes for money. Romeo's mom is poor, his dad is long gone, and you wonder how he gets dressed the way he does, always good shoes, lots of them, different, new Adidas basketball shoes, also great big black dressy shoes that everyone wants when they see them, even if they can't pull it off like he can..."

Romeo is bleeding and we just don't care. Long ago in this movie, we stopped caring about characters and logic and rational boundaries. The piece is some kind of cartoon...

William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet
This Shakespeare rendition is not so much a reconceptualization as a recontextualization of the 400-year-old play. This Romeo + Juliet is a rich visual feast, besotted with the fervor of its acrobatic camerawork and kinetic staging and its mind-bending aggregation of unrelated but resonant fragments of 20th century iconography. It is a Shakespearean work thoroughly conceived for the screen. DiCaprio and Danes again prove that they are two of the best actors of their generation. And William Shakespeare has once more demonstrated that he is a storyteller for all time.

Sergei's Big Score
Austin Symphony conductor Peter Bay has tremendous regard for both Sergei Prokofiev's score and Sergei Eisenstein's images for the 1938 film Alexander Nevsky, and as he prepares for a live performance of the score as the film is being shown, he talks about this remarkable fusion of image and music and what's involved in performing it live.

William Shakespeare's a Midsummer Night's Dream
For my money the most gloriously, enchantingly trivial play in the Shakespearean canon, A Midsummer Night's Dream may also be the most screwup-proof of the bard's works. The story, already...

First Look: Juliet Ristorante
High design and easy sipping on Barton Springs Road
DAILY Food  July 10, 2015, by Brandon Watson
"...It's that warmness that makes the relatively upscale Juliet at peace with its more family-friendly neighbors. In time, we suspect Juliet will become a perpetual date night favorite – just like Romeo's was all those years ago...."

I Defy You, Josh
In praise of Baz Luhrmann's funny, touching, totally insane film
DAILY Screens  August 18, 2008, by Kimberley Jones
"...I love the sound design – Tybalt's boot scraping on asphalt as he stamps out a cigarillo – and I love the soundtrack – witness Romeo's slo-mo catwalk twirl to the sounds of Radiohead. (Is it just me, or does Luhrmann festishize Leonardo DiCaprio in a way he doesn't his equally beautiful co-star, Claire Danes?)..."

Romeo and Juliet
The heart of this Tejano-style retelling is not the lovers but the people around them
Arts Review  May 22, 2009, by Hannah Kenah
"...Rather, the rethinking comes from the powerful performances of the supporting cast. The strength of this production lies not with the lovers but with their caretakers: the nurse, the friar, Romeo's best friend, Juliet's father – the people we watch as they watch these young lovers destroy themselves...."

Romeo and Juliet
St. Edward's University's lavish production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is, for the most part, an enjoyable, educational -- albeit long -- night of romance and comedic and dramatic irony, with some intense swashbuckling.
Arts Review  October 19, 2001, by Robi Polgar
"...Gary van der Wege's set design deserves special commendation. But the director has blocked most key moments in obscure stage positions, which lessens the impact of Romeo and Juliet's first kiss, or the death of Mercutio under Romeo's arm, or most of the balcony scene (where Romeo's back is all that half the house can see)...."

Shakespeare in Love
It's flighty, improbable stuff, meant not to be a historical restorative but a modern romantic tribute to the scribe whose words have launched a million sonnets.

Romeo and Juliet
The trick in staging Romeo and Juliet has ever been keeping the suspense in the second half that the first half never really needs, and the Austin Shakespeare Festival almost manages it
Arts Review  April 30, 2004, by Robi Polgar
"...The chemistry between the pair is intense, and their embraces are real. As Romeo's bud, Benvolio, Ben Wolfe has a role tailored to his strengths; comedian or large-hearted second, Wolfe is outstanding for both his sharpness and his swagger..."

Good Restaurants Make Good Neighbors
Food Story  November 20, 1998, by Virginia B. Wood
"...Good bar business was an integral component of Good Eats' success, as well, with the long, busy bar right in the dining room. Both Chuy's and Good Eats flourished during Austin's early Eighties boom, and as more and more developments popped up in the hills west of downtown, traffic on the once quiet Barton Springs Road increased exponentially. AUSTIN'S ORIGINAL RESTAURANT ROW: BARTON SPRINGS ROAD Green Mesquite BBQ 1400 Barton Springs, 479-0485 Romeo's 1500 Barton Springs, 476-1090 Good Eats Cafe (closed) 1530 Barton Springs Pizza Nizza 1608 Barton Springs, 474-7590 Shady Grove 1624 Barton Springs, 474-9991 Baby Acapulco 1628 Barton Springs, 474-8774 Chuy's 1708 Barton Springs, 474-4452..."

Romeo and Juliet
Despite some casting questions, the Baron's Men create a moving and involving version of this well-known tragedy
Arts Review  April 18, 2014, by Stacy Alexander Evans
"...Other casting choices, while bordering on the bizarre, seem to work. Eva McQuade as Mercutio is clearly a scene-stealing win for this audience, which embraces an interpretation of Romeo's BFF as a cocksure female instead of an effeminate male..."
