“Even [Shakespeare] himself would spring for a ticket to Alan Brown’s Private Romeo, an earnest experiment in don’t-ask-don’t-tell drama as indebted to shirtlessness as to iambic pentameter.” — The New York Times
Set in a modern day military school, this smash hit gay adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet features hot Broadway “War Horse” actors Matt Doyle and Seth Numrich as the star-crossed lovers. An innovative must-see gay film!
When eight male cadets are left behind at an isolated military high school, the greatest romantic drama ever written seeps out of the classroom and permeates their lives. Incorporating the original text of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, YouTube videos, and lip-synched indie rock music, Private Romeo takes us to a mysterious and tender place that only Shakespeare could have inspired.
