I don't know if it's entirely true (even on the 20th-century stage). I
saw a production of Romeo and Juliet ("R&J") in NYC several years ago.
The setting was a Catholic high school (boys only?) if I remember
correctly. But the actors were all mature men, and none of them appeared
as young as high school boys.
