Trip to Toronto

Compare William Shakespeare’s script of Romeo and Juliet to the Toronto Production/Luhrumann feature film. Have the directors changed any of the scenes? Are there similarities?

Because the director is working of of Shakespears play script there are manjy similarities but also a few parts that were in the play script but not in the play. The director also added a short intro befor the beginning of the play. I thought that was a cool added part especxially when the actors interacted with the audience

Explain whether or you enjoyed Shakespeare’s original script or preferred the Toronto Production/Luhrumans version.

I liked the Toronto production better because it seemed like there was a lot more humor and also I enjoyed the audience interaction. I think being a part of the audience also made it feel like I was more involved with the play unlike the movie were you don’t feel that same involvement

What’s was your favorite scene in the Toronto Production/ Luhrumann film? Why?

I think my favourite sccen was the added sceen in the beginning. Because it was something we haden’t seen it before it made me wonder what was happening and made me interested in how they were going to perform the play.

If you could change any scene in the Toronto Production/Luhrumann film which one would it be? What would your changes be?

I would have added the sceens they missed because the play might have made more sense

Explain how the directors from the Luhrumann’s version and the Toronto Production play out the last scene Romeo and Juliet see each other alive? Do they use certain props? Is it similar to the original play script?

Both the movie and the play include Romeo and Juliet dying beside eachother but some sceens were taken ot to shorten the play
