Aired: 2/12/2015 | 0:00:34 | Promotion
Joseph Fiennes has a unique perspective on Romeo and Juliet. He played Shakespeare – both writing and performing as Romeo – in the film Shakespeare in Love. Now he wants to examine why it remains the most-performed of all Shakespeare plays. Adaptations by London's Royal Ballet and Stephen Sondheim (West Side Story) are examined as are films by Franco Zeffirelli and Baz Luhrman.
