The once-unknown Olsen sister is taking her talents to the stage.

Classic Stage Company has announced that Elizabeth Olsen will star in a new production of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet to kick off the 2013/2014 season. No additional casting news has been released at this time.

You might know Olsen from her critically acclaimed performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene, or perhaps you remember her from 2012’s Silent House.

More recently, Olsen wrapped filming Old Boy, which is directed by Spike Lee and also stars Samuel L. Jackson and Josh Brolin.
