Recent performances often set the play in the contemporary world. For example, in , the Royal Shakespeare Company set the play in modern Verona. Switchblades replaced swords, feasts and balls became drug-laden rock parties, and Romeo committed suicide by hypodermic needle. Neil Bartlett's production of Romeo and Juliet themed the play very contemporary with a cinematic look which started its life at the Lyric Hammersmith, London then went to West Yorkshire Playhouse for an exclusive run in Romeo sneaks into the Capulet barbecue to meet Juliet, and Juliet discovers Tybalt's death while in class at school.
The play is sometimes given a historical setting, enabling audiences to reflect on the underlying conflicts. For example, adaptations have been set in the midst of the Israeli—Palestinian conflict ,  in the apartheid era in South Africa,  and in the aftermath of the Pueblo Revolt. In the 19th and 20th century, Romeo and Juliet has often been the choice of Shakespeare plays to open a classical theatre company, beginning with Edwin Booth 's inaugural production of that play in his theatre in , the newly re-formed company of the Old Vic in with John Gielgud , Martita Hunt , and Margaret Webster ,  as well as the Riverside Shakespeare Company in its founding production in New York City in , which used the film of Franco Zeffirelli 's production as its inspiration.
The best-known ballet version is Prokofiev 's Romeo and Juliet. It has subsequently attained an "immense" reputation, and has been choreographed by John Cranko and Kenneth MacMillan among others.

At least 24 operas have been based on Romeo and Juliet. It is occasionally revived. The play influenced several jazz works, including Peggy Lee 's " Fever ". This version updated the setting to midth-century New York City and the warring families to ethnic gangs. Romeo and Juliet had a profound influence on subsequent literature.
Before then, romance had not even been viewed as a worthy topic for tragedy. Romeo and Juliet was parodied in Shakespeare's own lifetime: Henry Porter 's Two Angry Women of Abingdon and Thomas Dekker 's Blurt, Master Constable both contain balcony scenes in which a virginal heroine engages in bawdy wordplay.
For example, the preparations for a performance form a major plot arc in Charles Dickens ' Nicholas Nickleby. Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare's most-illustrated works.

Romeo and Juliet may be the most-filmed play of all time. The latter two were both, in their time, the highest-grossing Shakespeare film ever. Neither critics nor the public responded enthusiastically. Cinemagoers considered the film too "arty", staying away as they had from Warner's A Midsummer Night Dream a year before: leading to Hollywood abandoning the Bard for over a decade. Stephen Orgel describes Franco Zeffirelli 's Romeo and Juliet as being "full of beautiful young people, and the camera and the lush technicolour, make the most of their sexual energy and good looks".
The play has been widely adapted for TV and film. In , Peter Ustinov 's cold-war stage parody, Romanoff and Juliet was filmed. The film was a commercial and critical success. The production starred Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad. The production used RSC actors who engaged with the audience as well each other, performing not from a traditional script but a "Grid" developed by the Mudlark production team and writers Tim Wright and Bethan Marlow. The performers also make use of other media sites such as YouTube for pictures and video.
