NEW YORK (AP) — Elizabeth Olsen will soon be a star-crossed lover — she’ll star in an off-Broadway version of Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet.”

Classic Stage Company said Thursday that the younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will help will kick off its 2013/2014 season. There’s no word yet on who will play Romeo.

The actress, who has gotten good notices for the films “Silent House” and “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” is currently filming the Spike Lee-directed film “Old Boy” opposite Samuel L. Jackson and Josh Brolin.

Her other films include “Liberal Arts” opposite Josh Radnor and Zac Efron, and “Red Lights,” with Robert De Niro and Sigourney Weaver. She and Dakota Fanning also play best friends in “Very Good Girls,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
