Romeo and Juliet
Sacramento, CA 95814
This production moves the setting to Prohibition-era New Jersey, but this tale of star-crossed lovers from rival dynasties remains funny in the bawdy first half, then tragic (as the bodies start piling up). Good chemistry between the young couple—it all happens so fast. W 6:30pm; Th 12:30 & 6pm; F 8pm; Sa 2 & 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 3/23. $12-$31. Sacramento Theatre Company at the Wells Fargo Pavilion, 1419 H St.; (916) 443-6722; www.sactheatre.org.
