1948-When Genevieve DeWinter, a beautiful Broadway actress, is cast opposite her long lost childhood friend, Will Hartley, in Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet," their chance reunion not only reawakens old feelings, but also revives memories of her haunting and traumatic past. They took completely different paths to reach success; Will got there by sheer luck, but Genevieve is hiding a deep secret about how she really survived the poverty of the Great Depression and made it to stardom. As both plays go on, it becomes increasingly evident that she and Will are not nearly as innocent as the young lovers they play.

The song See You Again by Charlie Puth played just as I reached the scene where he finds her dead... A piece of my heart broke along with Will's. Magnificent. Whole script was really well written. You need an award.  NEED.

There were typos here and there and some lines were a little hackneyed or cliché,  but overall, I could picture this playing out beautifully. Tears. Tears everywhere.

You have absolutely NO. IDEA. how much you made me cry. This was the most romantically-heartbreaking play that I've EVER read. More beautifully painful than those of Shakespeare... It was simply beautiful and utterly enchanting. 
                              Officially one of my favs. Thank you...

This is truly a beautiful play and the tragedy and all the emotions are incredibly well done.  Bravo.
