Inspired by William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, “Verona” is the story of two young lovers separated by their rival fraternities. Set in a small college town wherein young men are groomed for corporate success in All-American, hyper-competitive fashion, Verona presents the fate of star-crossed lovers in a society that condemns the very nature of their love.
This post-modern retelling of the greatest love story ever told brings to light the homophobic/homo-erotic dual nature of fraternity life, its perks and perils. The film in this incarnation was prepared to pave the way for public, private and corporate interest in a full-length feature, currently in pre-production. The project is one of passion for all those involved, hoping to present the nature of love in its truest form.
VERONA’S title song “BE FREE,” written exclusively for the film and performed by 90’s pop icon Maya Days, may now be downloaded for $1.00 at or directly through iTunes at
In addition to helping fund the full-length feature, proceeds from every download will be donated to The Matthew Shepard Foundation, to help raise awareness about homophobia and the fight against discrimination and anti-gay hate crimes.
