Michele (nerdmichele) If you're not a fan of Romeo and Juliet, you're not alone -- Samuel Pepys (pronounced "Peeps") watched the play when it was first performed and declared it "a play of itself the worst that ever I heard in my life, and the worst acted that ever I saw these people do".

You're Reading Romeo & Juliet Wrong: You're Supposed to Hate Romeo
