Summary/Abstract: This paper is part of a study on drama in the Romantic Age and the connections between Shakespeare’s works and the dramaturgical quests of the English Romantics, based also on certain reviews of contemporary Shakespearean productions. With regard to Romanticism, Shakespeare proved to be behind the innovative dramaturgical and stage language. Using recent examples of contemporary theatre and the critically acclaimed staging of Romeo and Juliet of New York Theatre Company Nature Theater of Oklahoma, an attempt is made to explore how this dependency is still topical nowadays and how Shakespeare’s work is a staple of the reforms in and the enriching of the contemporary theatrical language even today.
