Two Gentlemen of Verona, one of Shakespeare's earliest comedies, is a light and fast-paced romp, a story of two friends, two fools, two loves, two tangled courtships tumbling over two cities. Proteus and Valentine, close as brothers, find themselves head over heels for the same woman. Suddenly, loyalties and loves become muddled and confused! Friendships betrayed! Innocent bystanders deceived! Love letters are rent to shreds, noblemen are banished, travelers are kidnapped, lovesick women disguise themselves as men! Also, a dog! These are but a fraction of the machinations, manipulations, music, mayhem, and madness that all must transpire before the amorous adventures of the Two Gentlemen of Verona can come to an end.
