Romeo & Juliet: The Soundtrack
By Jake Russell Thompson, R&J Director and Voices Found Co-Founder
Weeks of music history research, digging through blogs, and sustaining a constant flow of music have come together in a single playlist. Not only is it a solid mixtape, if I do say so myself, it could also be used as an advertisement for Spotify Premium.
I wasn't sure it was worth it before. I was so wrong.

This whole album is great, but I've had "Hero Worship" stuck in my head for almost three days now.
Yesterday's meeting happened with all the windows and doors open to keep us from dying in the 90 degree humidity. Shanna Theiste's showed us the Capulets' accessories, Andy Montano dropped us into Coriolanus' world, and Zach Mclane taught us about Roman ruins.
