Romeo + Juliet at The Den | Live soundtrack by The Family Crest


  • The Den Theatre 1331 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60622 United States (map)

A SPECTACULAR RETELLING OF THE WORLD'S GREATEST LOVE STORY.

Shakespeare’s timeless tale is cinematically reimagined using live music performed by The Family Crest. Hitting the Main Stage of The Den Theatre for a limited three-show engagement, this event is an innovative combination of actors, dancers, and the band. Somewhere between a rock concert and a classic Shakespearean play, the story finds new life through enigmatic staging, engaging choreography, and an emotionally expressive soundtrack. Treated as party guests, the audience is dropped into middle of this sensational epic in an immersive night that feels like a music video come to life.

The evening features favorite hits from The Family Crest, combined with never-before-heard tracks from their upcoming album, The War Part II, which debuts in 2020. The grandiose, symphonic sounds of these classically trained musicians provides the inspiring soundtrack to the familiar tale and paints the picture like it’s never been seen before.
