BLEEDING LOVE: THE MUSICAL.

Think you know everything about the world’s most famous love story?

Think again!

Move over Shakespeare, this is one makeover like no other.

21 year old Romeo Montague is hot, single, sexy and rich. What more could any man ask for?

How about, love?

Meet 18 year old Juliet Capulet. She’s also hot, single, sexy and rich.

Sounds like the perfect match, right?

Think again!

When their two worlds collide, they will sacrifice everything for love, including their warring families.

This is a story about sex, love, hope, and tragedy.

This story fills in many missing pieces never shown on stage or screen.
With many characters altered from the original tale to fit in with their modern day counterparts, this story is retold in the complete modern day English language, based on today’s everyday living standards and set in modern day Paris, France.

This is Bleeding Love, The Untold Story of Romeo and Juliet.

Based on the novel by award winning author, Steve Genis.

*Please note: should you be successful in securing a role, you will be provided a copy of the novel (paperback) to read.
