Emerson Stage

Two Gentlemen of Verona

Book by John Guare and Mel Shapiro
Music by Galt MacDermot
Lyrics by John Guare
Based on the play by William Shakespeare
Directed by Scott LaFeber

Shakespeare’s first romantic comedy gets a treatment of music from the ‘70s in this story of love and betrayal involving best friends who fall in love with the same woman. The friends remain loyal only to their own desires, forsaking their friendship and those they love, as they let their passions guide them forward.
