The Two Gentlemen of Verona

Print

Summary

Set in Italy in the early 1960s, this lively production will bring music and romance to one of Shakespeare’s rarely-produced comedies. Two Gents has all the familiar Shakespearean surprises we love:  a crossdressing heroine, fickle young lovers, and a dangerous escape into the forest.  Add to that hilarious comedy from two clownish servants, along with Shakespeare’s most famous dog, and you know this is a must see! AST Artistic Director Rebekah Scallet directs this delightful exploration of lasting love and true friendship.

Presented outdoors at both the Village at Hendrix and behind the new Argenta Branch of the Laman Library, North Little Rock. Opens June 5th.
