#3.12 & Juliet, You Will Get Sick and 2023 Resolutions

In This Episode

Harrow and Meghan wrap up the season with a show catch-up, a reflection on the last year, and theatrical resolutions for 2023. Hosts discuss the millennial bait of & Juliet and how it measures up to other jukebox musicals, our love of Betsy Wolfe, and what worked and didn’t work for us in this star-crossed lovers tale with new queer characters. Hosts also discuss the recent run of the Roundabout Theatre Company production of You Will Get Sick and how it flips our expectations for character relationships. We discuss the transactional nature of caregiving, and we attempt to unravel the metaphors and symbols of the play’s story arc.

Shout outs to Brian D’Arcy James, I Want to F*ck Like Romeo & Juliet by Andrew Rincón, Strange Loop, and Breaking the Binary Theatre Festival as we wrap up 2023. Support Trans Youth this holiday season with Trans Santa.
