Elizabeth Olsen Celebrates Opening Night of “Romeo and Juliet”
She’s a dedicated thespian through and through, and last night (October 16) Elizabeth Olsen had a blast as her off-Broadway production of “Romeo and Juliet” held its opening night.
The “Silent House” starlet showed up at Pangea for a swanky after party, looking fabulous in a black flowered top and black trousers.
Elizabeth recently told press that her new stage gig is the result of years of collaborating with a good friend and colleague.
“It’s really, really exciting and terrifying [laughs]. For a couple of years, [CSC Artistic Director] Brian Kulick and I have been trying to figure out what to do together. Last March, he proposed a reading of Romeo & Juliet, and I wasn’t that interested until I started to do the work.”
“I feel like I saw Romeo & Juliet for the first time. I always thought of it as the most typical Shakespeare play; every human being on earth, if they know literature, knows Romeo & Juliet. But I realized there’s a reason why, because it’s one of the most beautiful plays every written.”
