Shakespeare on the Common: Two Gentlemen of Verona
July 6 - July 28, 2013
Commonwealth Shakespeare Company's Free Shakespeare On The Common is one of Greater Boston's most beloved traditions. For their 18th annual season, Commonwealth Shakespeare Company is excited to present the comedy The Two Gentlemen of Verona July 6 - 28, 2013.
Directed by the company's Artistic Director Steven Maler, The Two Gentlemen of Verona 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.”
The performance schedule is July 6 at 8pm; July 7 at 7pm; July 8-12 at 8pm; July 14-15 at 8:30pm; July 17 at 8:30pm; July 18 at 1pm; July 21 at 7pm; July 23-26 at 8pm; July 27 at 2pm & 8pm; and July 28 at 7pm. Free and open to the public.

This a unique and fresh approach. Superb acting (and singing) by all. One of the Arts Boston highlights. Makes for a highly enjoyable evening. Steven Mailer's direction is flawless. Shakespeare... Expand
