The Two Gentlemen Of Verona Directed by Steven Maler
What Happens in Milan,
stays in Milan...
WE HAVE NEW DATES AND TIMES FOR 2013!
This summer for our 18th season of Free Shakespeare on the Common, we are proud to 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..." COMMONWEALTH SHAKESPEARE COMPANY DEDICATES THIS SUMMER'S FREE SHAKESPEARE ON THE COMMON TO MAYOR THOMAS M. MENINO AND FIRST LADY ANGELA MENINO
Mayor Menino and his wife Angela have been avid supporters of Commonwealth Shakespeare Company's Free Shakespeare on the Common and the mission of Commonwealth Shakespeare Company of bringing FREE theatre to the people of Boston. Mayor Menino has said, “Commonwealth Shakespeare Company has enriched the lives of hundreds of thousands of adults and children from throughout Greater Boston. They contribute greatly to the vitality of our city and enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors alike.”
