Romeo & Juliet introduces “pop Shakespeare” to a younger generation
The intentions of Romeo and Juliet are noble ones. It means to condense Shakespeare down into a simple, easily identifiable package, to create a re-telling that’s more in line with teen romance than classic literature.
Douglas Booth, as Romeo, squints into the camera as though he’s just stepped out of a cologne ad. Hailee Steinfeld, as Juliet, scribbles away in her diary to the tune of twinkling piano ballads. By no means is it an intelligent or novel Shakespeare adaptation, but it’s not meant to be. It’s a stepping-stone for those who need an extra boost into the words of the Bard. > Read more.
Since October 1990, The Tavern has been as faithful to its clientele as “Cheers,” where everybody knows your name. On a lazy Saturday afternoon recently, repeat customers cozied up to the bar to watch football on one of three flat-screen TVs. Without fail, the staff knew their names and orders without asking.
Native Richmonders know The Tavern, although it is hidden in a little shopping center at the corner of Patterson and Three Chopt. From the minute you walk in, you’re greeted with a warm smile in the relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. The wooden booths, hardwood floors and large bar give it a true tavern feel. > Read more.
