Star Crossed

The Shakespearean Tragedy of Darryl Strawberry and Dwight Gooden: Independently produced and financed, Star Crossed told the story of New York Mets phenoms, Darryl Strawberry and Dwight Gooden, whose stars rose and fell during the 80s and 90s. Using New York sportswriters in the role of the Greek Chorus and actor Sean Patrick Thomas reciting Shakespearean monologues we connected the tragedy of Gooden and Strawberry to the themes in the plays of William Shakespeare.
