The Basilique Performing Arts Company, Second Life’s most pioneering immersive theatre company presents a “Masterful Adaptation” of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Directed by Canary Beck and Harvey Crabsticks, this timeless love story is brought to Second Life by an exceptionally talented cast of 6 players full of “heart, soul and passion”.
Set against “breathtaking” renaissance – inspired sets, costumes from the 1940s, and contemporary music, this “labour of love” is “stunning work of art” that you will not want to miss.
This “hauntingly beautiful” production features music from Nat King Cole, Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman, Michael Buble, Jack Black, Carl Douglas, Moby, Duran Duran, The Indigo Girls and Queen. You’re sure to enjoy not only a visual spectacle but also a musical feast. The Performance will run for 3 performances at Linden Endowment for the Arts. Admittance while the show plays at LEA14 is free.

Romeo + Juliet in Second Life ran for 40 weeks at the Basilique Playhouse in 2013. Lauded and acclaimed since opening in April 2013, this really is a show not to be missed. Completely remastered from the ground up, using the technology we developed for Paradise Lost in Second Life, this show will begin its official, ticketed run in August 2014 at which time tickets will be available only through the marketplace.
