Over the last two days I rewatched Romeo e Giulietta, this time with subtitles! I liveblogged my thoughts about it on tumblr because it was the only way I was going to successfully get myself to rewatch the whole thing. (I am so bad at watching things.) So! You can read my thoughts at the tag sophia-rewatches r e g at my tumblr, if that is something that interests you.

have now watched the Takarazuka production (Star troupe) of Romeo et Juliette, and can I just say: WHY DOESN'T EVERYBODY DO SPARKLY ALL-FEMALE PRODUCTIONS OF MUSICALS????

in other words, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Hungarian Romeo es Julia is still first in my heart, but this is definitely still great.

I liked Romeo and Juliet, I liked Benvolio, Mercutio was weirdly uninteresting, Tybalt was GREAT, Paris was appropriately hilarious, everyone was beautiful and everyone was wearing beautiful outfits, and I ship the personifications of Love and Death a lot.

AND NOW IT IS BEDTIME.

Romeo e Giulietta Act Two! again in comparison with Rome es Julia because that’s the only production I’m familiar with!

I should state for the record, by the way, that I don't speak a word of italian and the stream I'm watching does not have any subtitles. MY LIFE, MY CHOICES, ETC.

So there's a new production of Romeo e Giulietta out! This being the Italian version of the musical Romeo et Juliette (the same one the Hungarian Romeo es Julia is based on). SO OF COURSE I HAD TO WATCH IT.

Tonight: just act one, as that's all I've had time for.

cut for spoilers or something I guess )
