Anchorwoman:
Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene. From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their life, whose misadventured piteous overthrows doth, with their death, bury their parents' strife. The fearful passage of their death-marked love and the continuance of their parents' rage, which, but their children's end, naught could remove, is now the two hours' traffic of our stage.

Transcript:
in fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
from ancient grudge
break to new mutiny,
where civil blood
makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins
of these two foes,
a pair of star-cross'd lovers
take their life;
whose misadventured
piteous overthrows
doth with their death
bury their parents' strife.
The fearful passage
of their death-mark'd love
and the continuance
of their parents’ rage,
which, but their children's end,
nought could remove,
is now the two hours' traffic
of our stage.
Two households,
both alike in dignity,
in fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
from ancient grudge
break to new mutiny,
where civil blood
makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins
of these two foes,
a pair of star-cross'd lovers
take their life.
