This Weekend’s Must See~ the Final Weekend of “The People vs. Friar Laurence”!

This weekend marks the final three performances of the hilarious new musical comedy, The People vs. Friar Laurence- The Man Who Killed Romeo and Juliet at the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks. I highly recommend you get out and see this hysterical musical that is a twisted and wacky version of the classic Romeo + Juliet where we find Friar Laurence being interrogated for the murders of the title characters. People stars my dear friend and Sammy Kingsford: Manager to the Stars costar Rick Simone as Tybalt along with a great cast including Billy Giampaolo as Friar Laurence, Alex Tordi as Romeo and Bethany Regan as Juliet. Take a look at all the show and cast info below plus some pictures from this great show. Then, head to or brown paper tickets to get your seats to The People vs. Friar Laurence. Enjoy

The People Vs. Friar Laurence: The Man Who Killed Romeo and Juliet

Written by Ron West and Phil Swann, The People vs Friar Laurence is a hilarious musical comedy rendition starring the Friar of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Friar Laurence is behind bars and charged with the murder of the two young lovers. The twisted trial progresses into a Vaudeville-like mayhem in the race to determine the plot behind the ultimate blame for Romeo and Juliet’s demise at the feet of Friar Laurence. The fast-moving freight train of characters and non-stop Shakespearean spoof of adventure takes the audience on a musical journey of love, confusion and chaos.
