In a meta-theatrical moment in “Not Another Horror Movie,” Kevin (Joseph F.

“Romeo and Juliet,” Italian director Carlo Carlei’s most ambitious adaptation to date, attempts to stand out from past renditions of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy.

The Adams Pool used to be a literal swimming pool as well as a place of free expression for students of all sexualities. In the 1990s, the Pool was transformed into a theater, and tonight, on National Coming Out Day, “#Queers” will explore modern queer relationships, a nod to the Pool’s promiscuous past. This student-written comedy, consisting of two one-acts, will run until Sunday.
