"Romeo & Juliet" Lawrence Olivier Stage Costume
LAWRENCE OLIVIER STAGE COSTUME FROM 1940 PRODUCTION OF "ROMEO AND JULIET" - Lawrence Olivier starred as “Romeo” opposite his wife, Vivien Leigh, as “Juliet”. Olivier also directed the production, staged in Los Angeles, and it must have been quite a hot ticket as it followed on the heels of his appearance in Alfred Hitchcock’s Rebecca and Leigh’s starring role in Gone With the Wind. Olivier, arguably the greatest Shakespearean actor of his generation, was determined to show that theatre was his passion despite his and his wife’s recent success in film. A rare chance to own a stage worn Laurence Olivier Shakespearean costume.
