Celebration Quotation – January, 31, 2016

Today’s quote comes from Romeo and Juliet:

"Women may fall when there's no strength in men." Romeo and Juliet, Act II, Scene 3

The photo – by William Byron – comes from a1903 production of the play by Liebler and Co. –  one of the major American theatre producing organizations in the early 20th century.  heir company records are in the collection at the New York Public Library.  The actors pictured are William H. Thompson as Friar Lawrence, and Kyrie Bellew as Romeo.  We were not able to dig up much on the careers of either of these actors, but we are happy to honor their memory by sharing this photo of what looks to be a lavishly-appointed production.  Wish it was in color!
