Collide's Romeo and Juliet win tickets!

Romeo and Juliet is easily William Shakespeare's most familiar work, starting out as a lighthearted romp and building to a conclusion of epic tragedy. Though it's a tale that has been told for hundreds of years, it's also one that can be made fresh with new elements and tweaks on interpretation. Collide Theatrical will be giving their take on the classic tale starting this weekend and next. While they will still be employing the original dialogue from the Bard, the setting has been updated to Brooklyn, NY, in the year 2000; the Capulets and Montagues are now political families; and the four-string quartet will set the scene with top 40 hits by U2, Lady Gaga, and Michael Jackson.

We've got two sets of general admission tickets to the show on Thursday night. Here's how to enter to win:
