Derek Magyar to Direct Immersive, Multi-media ROMEO & JULIET

ROMEO AND JULIET  - Filament Theatre Company
[Production update 1/8/15: This production has been indefinitely postponed] Tom Payne will star as Romeo and Ana Khamis as Juliet in Filament Theatre Company and Skinny Lee Productions’ Romeo & Juliet. The apocalyptic, immersive, multi-media & cinematic adaptation will be directed by Derek Magyar.

Can true love save civilization or is all mankind damned for eternity? Utilizing for the first time the Riverside Studios in Atwater Village, audiences will be transported to a world gone mad with a visually rich design that will immerse them in an environmental experience that no Romeo & Juliet has yet attempted…the end of days.
