“Myth: People never change. Oh, but they do. Drastically and permanently. This occurred to me when I watched the Shakespeare Behind Bars production of Romeo and Juliet at Luther Luckett Prison last night. These men cannot re-do the day that sealed their fate, but they have become better men while they are serving their time. I admire that.” – audience member
