You may think you’ve seen “Romeo and Juliet” in all the different forms it has taken—William Shakespeare’s stage play, the musical West Side Story, the ballets, the operas, the movies, the novelizations, the limericks.

But Rob Roznowski, professor of theater at Michigan State University, is betting you haven’t seen it the way his students are about to present it. In fact, he’s betting if you come see it every night they’re performing it, you’ll have a different experience every time.

An experiment in immersive theater, “Thus With a Kiss I Die,” is an original work that takes actors and audience members all throughout the MSU Auditorium in the telling of a Southern college that decides to do a color-blind casting of “Romeo and Juliet” in 1958. It’s the early days of segregation and this brings a tidal wave of controversy upon the production.

The audience and actors will come together three times during the show—at auditions, at a rehearsal and at the final dress rehearsal. Between those times, audience members can choose to follow any of numerous pathways. They can pick an actor to follow, stay in a particular room, or follow different story lines. No matter what they choose, they’ll have a unique experience.

“Immersive theater has become a popular art form in many places,” said Roznowski, who is directing the piece and also conceived and wrote it. “I’ve been seeing a lot of it and it struck me this is something perfect for our actors to tackle here. There is an immediacy that isn’t in film or on the stage. They are learning a whole new set of skills.”

He said that’s been the biggest challenge for both actors and designers—the audience is literally right next to them, often just inches away. Designers have to pay greater attention to details because the audience can see what they’ve created. Actors have to help guide the audience members on how to watch the show and work to make the audience members feel comfortable while remaining in character.
