Love at First Sight

The Cast of Short Shakesepeare! Romeo and Juliet Answer:

Samuel Ashdown - Tybalt
Do I believe in love at first sight? Well, I think when your heart tells you something it is important to trust it—especially when it doesn't seem to make sense.

Jeb Burris - Mercutio Yes.  To me, love is a feeling—a feeling of safety, desire, and comfort.  I believe you can feel all those things by seeing someone.  Of course, it may be beneficial to get to know the person before acting upon it, but I do believe in falling in love on sight.

Laura Rook - Juliet
I do! I can't help myself. I'm a hopeless romantic and wear my heart so far onto my sleeve that it's practically hanging off my pinky! Eskimos having almost 100 words for snow. I think we need way more words for ‘love.’ ‘Love at first sight’ love is much different from "50-year wedding anniversary love,’ ‘I love you, bro’ love, and ‘I LOVE chocolate’ love. But all of those loves are just as true as the next. 

Christopher Allen - Romeo
Yes, I do believe in love at first sight. Why not? I think it's a good way to live your life if you believe that at any instant there's a chance you could stumble upon someone special. 

Melissa Carlson – Lady Capulet
At heart, I'm a romantic.  That side of me wants to say: yes! But love is a word that is bandied about a bit too easily.  Certainly you can be attracted at first sight and drawn to someone's energy. It's the inexplicable draw that can happen between two souls in an instant.  And to that I say: Yes, yes, a thousand times, yes!
