Romeo Rises to the Challenge at the Cameri


Actor Dan Shapira will perform tonight in Romeo and Juliet at the Cameri – cast & all! The premiere of the Shakespeare play newly translated by Eli Bijaoui and directed by Noam Shmuel was postponed for 24 hours due to Shapira’s injury during rehearsals. Midnight East applauds Shapira’s spirit! I suppose this is one moment in theatre when the traditional “break a leg” just won’t do…
