“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

“Blown away as always to our annual homage to Shakespeare Behind Bars at Luther Luckett Correctional Complex.
An amazingly poignant production left us in tears and humbled by the opportunity to support these guys in their work.”
