Sounds more like _West Side Story_ with a little tweak (rather than a 
full-blown twist) to me . . . ?

Whatever we say about the Capulets, we should remind ourselves that Ann 
Cicolella, Artistic Director of Austin Shakespeare, aims to produce 
Romeo and Juliet ' in an interesting and fun way'. To this end, she is 
able to use a cast that makes Shakespeare ' totally accessible and 
amusing'. Like Wall Street, really.
