Romeo and Juliet
The incredible tragic story of the Star Crossed lovers forbidden to be together by their family's infamous feud. Romeo and Juliet could not stand the idea of not being together due the events taken place in the story they take away their lives to be together. In the end to many lives are taken and the rivalry is disolved
West Side Story!!
Both stories do not hesitate to get
to a quick start. One event
occured after another.
Romeo and Tony both killed someone inspite of revenge. Neither of them had intended for this to happen.
Interesting enough both of the two fled the secen immediately after they realized their victim was dead.
