Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written early in the career of playwright William Shakespeare about two young "star-cross'd lovers" whose untimely deaths ultimately unite their feuding families. One of Shakespeare's most popular and frequently performed plays, it was referenced in several Muppet productions.
