NYSTI presents \Romeo and Juliet with a modern twist

"NYSTI gave me the means to explore all aspects of theater," she said. "They're a theater I love working for."

While Nemeroff doesn't have quite the history with NYSTI that Hettesheimer and CeFala do, he has high praise for the work being done on "Romeo and Juliet."

"I'd run this play for months on end," he said. "It's never enough for me."

Audiences, Nemeroff expects, will enjoy the show, too.

"This story is one of the greatest stories ever written," he said. "It's that simple. It's a sad story, but it's not like a terrible downer. It's vibrant. It's so passionate and energetic. Even if you've seen it before, you'll leave there feeling something."

"Romeo and Juliet" will be performed at the Schacht Fine Arts Center at Russell Sage College in Troy on the following dates:

Saturday, March 13, 8 p.m.

Sunday, March 14, 2 p.m.

Friday, March 19, 8 p.m.
