The(ir) Blurb...

“Romeu & Romeu” adapts the classic love story “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare. Following some patterns of the original version, this new version of the story takes place today, in the fictional city of Verona of the South, where Capuletos and Montéchios are replaced by Campelos and Monteiros, families that live a rivalry known by all the city, in the shadow of a crime committed in the past. However, the similarities to the original story end there. Romeo and Juliet become Romulo (Arthur Chermont) and Ramon (João Mesquita) and mix personality traits of both classic characters, giving a new life to the well-known plot.
