Two Romeos forget
about Juliet

Two Romeos forget
about Juliet

A U.K. reincarnation of the classic Shakespearean play Romeo and Juliet will get a gay twist, abandoning Juliet altogether. Matthew Bourne, the country's most successful choreographer, will give Romeo a male lover in the romantic tragedy, the Times of London reports.

Choreographer of an all-male Swan Lake, which ran for more than a decade, Bourne told the newspaper that the challenge to working on Romeo, Romeo is to create a convincing gay relationship through dance.

"It's more to do with dancing than with sexuality. A male dancer, whether he's gay or straight, fits into a relationship with a female partner very happily," he told the Times. "Getting away from that, making a convincing love duet, a romantic, sexual duet, for two men that is comfortable to do and comfortable to watch--I don't know if you can. I've never seen it done."
