Romeo and Juliet is a play written by William Shakespeare around 1595 set in Italy about the tragic romance between two adolescents from constantly quarrelling families.

One of the players in the Player King's troupe in 971 was named Benvolio, a name later borne by a friend of Romeo's in the play. ("The Promise")

In 1996, while Broadway read the opening of Act II, Scene ii with Angela, Brooklyn quoted the scene's end ("Parting is such sweet sorrow"). ("The Journey")

After being released from prison in 1997, Dino Dracon later taunted both Peter Choy and Rosaria Sanchez as "Romeo and Juliet" when he kidnapped them in Central Park. ("Tale Old as Time")

Before his death, Halcyon Renard quotes the opening line the prologue ("both alike in dignity") when comparing Preston Vogel and Owen Burnett. ("Young At Heart")

Queen Mab, Oberon's mother and deposed ruler of the Third Race, is mentioned by Mercutio in Act I, Scene iv. [1][2][3]
