The Department of Theatre is pleased to present the first production in the PAHB Theatre, Two Gentlemen of Verona, directed and adapted by Eve Muson, beginning Thursday, April 18.
When Valentine and Proteus leave Verona to seek their fortunes in Milan, their boyhood friendship turns to rivalry when they both fall in love with the same girl. Proteus sets out to betray both his best friend and hometown sweetheart, only to find that the ladies in his life have a thing or two to teach him about loyalty and love. Quick-witted servants, bawdy outlaws and a faithful canine companion make this one of Shakespeare’s most lighthearted comedies.
Set in imagined renaissance Italy, this production melds past and present, transcends time and blends music and dance. A visual mash-up of time periods, the play explores what happens when the bonds of friendship and fidelity are put to the test.
