Romeo & Juliet - La Tour Vagabonde

A collapsible (ok; dissemble-able) replica of an Elizabethan theatre, on display in central Paris (Pont Marie) hosting Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet' - You will admit, the concept is alluring, to say the least.

As it turns out, it was alluring!
Perfection would have been attained, had not the performance of the play been such overblown melodrama. Trained actors bellowing, shrieking and howling at each other for three full hours, in a very restricted area = Tiring only begins to describe it.

An eyeful, though! (I could have gone without the earful.)
