Elizabeth Olsen has signed up to star in an off-Broadway version of Romeo and Juliet.

Classic Stage Company announced the star of Martha Marcy May Marlene and Liberal Arts will launch their 2013/14 theatre season playing Shakespeare's star-crossed lover. The role of Romeo is yet to be cast.

Elizabeth, the younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, is currently filming Spike Lee's remake of Old Boy opposite Samuel L. Jackson and Josh Brolin.

She recently appeared with Dakota Fanning as best friends in Very Good Girls, which showed at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
