Based on the play by William Shakespeare, as told by Bart Marks
In the town of Verona lived two families, the Capulets and the Montagues, engaged in a bitter feud. Among the Montagues was Romeo, a hot-blooded lad with an eye for the ladies.
One day, Romeo was recounting for his friends his love for Rosaline, a haughty beauty from a well-to-do family. Romeo’s friends chided him for his "love of love” but agreed to a plan to attend the feast of the Capulets’, a costume party where Rosaline was expected to make an appearance. The disguises would provide Romeo and his friends a bit of sport and the opportunity to gaze undetected upon the fair Rosaline. Once there, however, Romeo’s eyes fell upon Juliet, and he thought of Rosaline no more.
