Romeo & Bernadette: A Musical Tale of Verona & Brooklyn Set To Classic Italian Melodies

Zach Schanne, Troy Valjean Rucker, Carlos Lopez, Nikita Burshteyn, Viet Vo, Michael Notardonato, Michael Marotta

Perhaps you think Romeo died at the climax of Romeo and Juliet? Nope. He just took a sleeping potion, and when he awakes a few centuries later, he suddenly finds himself in Brooklyn, with some of the world’s most recognizable Italian melodies famous from movies, television and many, many pizzerias.

Romeo chases a girl he believes is his beloved Juliet. But no, it’s not Juliet—it’s Bernadette, the beautiful, sassy daughter of a local mobster. Alas Romeo finds himself aligned with the rival crime family.

The cast for Romeo & Bernadette is: Nikita Burshteyn (Newsies), Anna Kostakis (NYdebut), Carlos Lopez (Man of La Mancha), Michael Marotta (Tenderly: The Rosemary Clooney Musical), Judy McLane (Mamma Mia), Pascal Pastrana (Rock N Roll Debauchery), Ari Raskin (NY debut), Troy Valjean Rucker (The Scottsboro Boys), Zach Schanne (Pippin), and Viet Vo (The Mikado). 

Book & lyrics by Michael Saltzman and music adapted from classic Italian melodies, directed by Justin Ross Cohen. Performances begin Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at 7:00pm for a 5-week limited run through Saturday, February 16, 2020 in the Mezzanine Theater at A.R.T./New York Theatres (502 West 53rd Street @10th Avenue). Opening Night is Thursday, January 23, 2020 at 8:00pm.
