The American Drama Group Europe was formed by Ohio native Grantly Marshall in 1978 in the city of Munich. it was linked in the beginning to the University of Munich where the first performances were held. It expanded quickly to other theatres in Munich and also began to give guest performances in other German cities. The expansion was continued to include many countries in Europe and Asia. The goal of the American Drama Group Europe is to perform high quality theatre in as many countries in the world as possible. In 1994, the ADGE began touring European Castles featuring many illustrious places and surprises. The actors come from New York, London and Paris (in 1985 French theatre performances were added to our repertoire) where the productions are cast and directed. © Text und Bild: American Drama Group Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy  written by William Shakespeare early in his career about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime and along with Hamlet, is one of his most frequently performed plays. Today, the title characters are regarded as archetypal young lovers. Romeo and Juliet belongs to a tradition of tragic romances stretching back to antiquity. The plot is based on an Italian tale translated into verse as The Tragical History of Romeus and Juliet by Arthur Brooke in 1562 and retold in prose in Palace of Pleasure by William Painter in 1567. Shakespeare borrowed heavily from both but expanded the plot by developing a number of supporting characters, particularly Mercutio and Paris. Believed to have been written between 1591 and 1595, the play was first published in a quarto version in 1597. The text of the first quarto version was of poor quality, however, and later editions corrected the text to conform more closely with Shakespeare's original. © Wikipedia
