Shakespeare on the Common! "The Two Gentlemen of Verona"

Organized by norm.g
What Happens in Milan, stays in Milan! 18th season of Free Shakespeare on the Common, present the comedy The Two Gentlemen of Verona.


"Two Gents" tells the tale of two friends who leave their hometown of Verona to find their happy fortunes in Milan. Instead, they find temptation, trickery, and trouble as they vie for favor with the high-society Duke... and his debutante daughter. All are drawn into a web of disguise and secrecy where the last thing anyone wants is for the truth to surface -- least of all the dog. Inspired by Rat Pack-era Vegas -- the glamour, the hedonism, and the morning after agonies -- the production brings new meaning to the line "what happens in Milan, stays in Milan..."
