Description

"Romeo and Juliet, one of the greatest love stories ever told . . . in texts?! Imagine: What if those star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet had smartphones? A classic is reborn in this fun and funny adaptation of one of Shakespeare's most famous plays! Two families at war. A boy and a girl in love. A secret marriage gone oh-so-wrong. The classics just got a whole lot more interesting. ;) A Shakespeare play told through its characters texting with emojis, checking in at certain locations, and updating their relationship statuses. The perfect gift for hip theater lovers and teens. A glossary and cast of characters are included for those who need it. For example: means too long; didn't read. "
