"Just came across an advertisment in a local paper for the following:
Rome & Jewels "A Hip-Hop love story and dance inspired by Romeo and
Juliet and West Side Story." Feb 24-29, 2004 The Elgin Theatre, Toronto.
I've never heard of this before.  Does anyone know anything about this
show?"

Try Doug Lanier's _Shakespeare and Modern Popular Culture_, Oxford UP,
2002, (chapter 3 in particular), and Richard Burt's essay "Slammin'
Shakespeare" in _SQ_, summer 2002 (vol. 53 no. 2)

Best,
