From an email:

“Petworth-based theater company, LiveArtDC (pronounced “give art”), is bringing the Capital Fringe festival close to home. They will host a production of Shakespeare’s most famous love story, Romeo and Juliet, at Georgia Avenue’s DC Reynolds — re-imagined with beer, flip cup and audience participation.

From the press release:

“LiveArtDC will host the DC premiere of Three Day Hangover’s “R+J: Star-Cross’d Death Match” for the 2014 Capital Fringe Festival at DC Reynolds. From rap battles, dance-offs and beer-filled flip cup competitions, the boozy retelling of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” brings the audience into the middle of theater’s best-known family feud.

    LiveArtDC is pronounced “give art”? Is that a typo or something?

    • Florista

      I think they mean “live” as in “give,” as opposed to “live” as in “dive.” Right? I like the idea of ‘Living ArtDC,’ if that’s the intent!!

      • That is exactly the intent. Thanks! :-)

          You might want to add the word “like” to the description — “LiveArtDC (with ‘live’ pronounced like ‘give’).”

        • Sam

          Or just say “rhymes with give art”

      Yeah, I was wondering if this was one of those “My name is Sghfjh8b but it’s pronounced ‘John'” things.
