A modern day "Romeo & Juliet"

Romeo & Juliet

You've heard about the missing soldier in Iraq, the American Army member who went missing last week... Well, I think this is a contemporary Romeo & Juliet. From the New York Times>:
The missing American soldier who has been the subject of an intensive manhunt here in the capital since he was kidnapped by gunmen outside the heavily protected Green Zone last week was secretly married to an Iraqi woman and had been visiting her at the time of the abduction, several people who identified themselves as his in-laws said Sunday.
This is Romeo & Juliet. The Americans are the Montagues, and the Iraqis are the Capulets. This is one production I'd like to see; let's hope the real-life version plays out with less tragedy than Shakespeare's "Most Excellent and Lamentable Tragedy ."
