* CanonImmigrant / {{Crossover}}: The {{Takarazuka}} productions keep the French version's inclusion of an AnthropomorphicPersonification of Death, but the role is danced by an otokoyaku (male-role actress), played as male, and ''clearly'' intended to be the same personified Death as the one in ''{{Elisabeth}}''.

* AnachronismStew: The costumes in this show tend to look like LadyGaga multiplied the fourteenth century by the late nineties. Mercutio in the Viennese production was dressed a bit like a ''Film/GangsOfNewYork''-style street brawler.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceToTheWaiter: Consistent with Shakespeare's text, Tybalt is sometimes played this way, though in some representations servants complain about him and compare him unfavorably to his father.

* SparedByTheAdaptation: Lady Montague in all productions (in Shakespeare, she's reported to have died offstage of grief when Romeo was exiled) and Paris in all but the Hungarian (in Shakespeare and the Hungarian adaptation, Paris is killed by Romeo at the Capulet tomb).

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
** Notably invoked, that Romeo ''isn't'' the broody, [[{{Wangst}} wangsting]] EmoTeen he is in Shakespeare, but just a sensitive young guy who dreams of one day finding someone to love and share his life with.
** Tybalt is in love with his cousin, Juliet, so his motivation switches from petty battle lust to romantic jealousy. Depending on the version, Tybalt murdering Mercutio may be an accident or [[AdaptationalVillainy completely deliberate]]. How he reacts also can vary anywhere between gloating and actual catatonia.
** So far, Mercutio has had three settings: a simple womanising fun loving man, an otherworldly willing agent of chaos, or a man driven by unrequited love for his best friend.


Added DiffLines:

* CuteMute: The original production had "La Muette", a servant of the Capulets who transcribed the songs into sign language. The Nurse is protective of her, and although Benvolio teased her unkindly at first, by the end they are implied love interests.

* NoAccountingForTaste: Lord and Lady Capulet, according to the song "Grosse" that was added for the Asian tour.

Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: Even Death appears to take pity on the amount of grief Benvolio has to deal with, and seem like they wish to comfort him in "Comment Lui Dire".
