"[Director Jim Warren] told the actors that he wanted the production 'to remind us all what it was like to fall in love for the first time, or the last time, or to show us what we have in front of us if we haven’t yet fallen in love.' He does that with song, dance, violence, great performances, and gorgeous language. By the time a long blast from an air horn breaks up the first street brawl, I’m breathing like I did when I first fell in love."
"Gregory Jon Phelps plays Mercutio with the kind of reckless charisma I loved and envied in the guys I wanted to become when I was in high school. He bridges the gap between Shakespeare’s era and mine by using voices and facial expressions I might have used myself when I was sixteen, if I’d had his wit and nerve."
