In this delightful Shakespearean-comedy-turned-rock-musical adapted by John Guare and composed by Galt MacDermot, travel to a psychedelic 1970’s Renaissance wonderland. Two Gentlemen of Verona, a Tony-award winning musical, follows the story of Proteus, a larger-than-life, passionate, young man, and Valentine, Proteus’s honor-driven best friend, as they find themselves engulfed in a love triangle. The beautiful Julia and Lucetta journey to the bustling city of Verona in pursuit of Proteus, only to stumble upon a shocking betrayal. In Verona, meet Silvia, the daughter of a power-hungry politician, as she takes matters into her own hands when her father attempts to arrange her marriage with the conceited but fabulously wealthy Thurio. This thrilling musical reflects the types of songs one would hear throughout many different districts of New York in the 1970s, full of jazzy dance numbers, energetic rock tunes, and heartfelt love songs. Watch as you are welcomed into a blast-from-the-past with the ageless story of William Shakespeare’s Two Gentlemen of Verona.
