"More inconstant than the wind..."
KenBran's residency at the Garrick continues with an all-star Romeo and Juliet, reuniting Richard Madden and Lily James from his Cinderella, and there's finally a bit of interesting casting with Derek Jacobi as Mercutio. That said, it's somewhat typical that this season's one headline concession to diversity has been to put an old white man in a young white man's part. Here's my 3 star review for Cheap Theatre Tickets.
