Shakespeare on Love — Romeo and Juliet at the Fenimore

Shakespeare on Love

Romeo and Juliet at the Fenimore

Michael and Danielle Henrici as Romeo and Juliet in the Glimmer Globe Theatre production of the play.

The Glimmer Globe Theatre’s vibrant production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet at the Fenimore Art Museum provides fresh evidence that local theater is alive and well in Cooperstown.

Staged by director (and Romeo) Michael Henrici amid the rocker versus mod backdrop of early 1960s Britain (think Jets and Sharks), the Glimmer Globe cast handles Shakepeare’s knotty, pun-driven 16th century English with aplomb. The cast is uniformly fine: as the Nurse, Mary Fralick almost steals the show; as the exuberantly abusive Mercutio, Nadel Henvile dominates the stage every time she is on it, so much so that we regret Mercutio has to die quite so soon. Peter Exton, as Friar Lawrence, is the perennial well-intentioned liberal who makes a mess of everything.
