“In transposing the setting to modern Harlem (and cleverly adapting the text without ever compromising it), Emeka and his team crystallize precisely why the stakes are so high. More than any other that I have seen, this "Romeo and Juliet" suffuses the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets with grave believability…The families' conflict feels visceral, if absurd, and we understand precisely not only what everyone involved stands to lose in pursuing it but also the impetuous bravery of the lovers' choices.”
