Young love doesn’t always end in tragedy.
Shakespeare’s romantic comedy – with a twist, of course – gives us some of the Bard’s most memorable moments. Proteus has a devoted best friend and a girlfriend who adores him, but all that changes when he meets Silvia. Cross-dressing, music, bandits, broken hearts, and a scene-stealing dog make this one of Shakespeare’s most delightful comedies.

“Shakespeare Festival’s ‘Two Gentlemen’ a breezy look at friendship, love” – Times-Picayune |

“Jessica Podewell’s keen direction allows every actor to shine.” – Gambit
