This performance is a musical version of Romeo and Juliet, which is set in the devastated earth after nuclear war. The Capulets are humans surviving in the underground world, whereas the Montagues living on the ground are mutants by radiation exposure. They are fighting against each other in order to survive. However, Juliet and Romeo fall in love with each other when Juliet sneaks above ground because of her curiosity for the outer world. Finally, Juliet drinks a potion to become a mutant, and Romeo a potion to become a human. But this results in Juliet being killed by humans, and Romeo killed by mutants.
