  Sara Higgins is one of the members of Shakespeare’s Globe, which makes its Spoleto Festival USA debut with a brand new production of Romeo and Juliet. Higgins talks with Jeanette Guinn about how the company brought a new energy to this beloved play.

Renowned for its authentic yet bold productions, this esteemed company hails from London’s rebuilt Globe Theatre—the venue Shakespeare called home. Spoleto Festival USA presents the first US performances of this new production.
