Romeo and Juliet, The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and Shakespeare & Company

Kleinhans Music Hall, Buffalo, May 4 – 5, 2002

Critical Response

“Other instances as the play unfolded made unique use of the orchestra’s presence. When Capulet announced, “Play, musicians!” he signaled the BPO, which burst forth at top volume. The effect was stunning. . . . Johnny Lee Davenport all but steals the show as an overpowering Capulet.”
