The Two Gentlemen of Verona


New York’s inventive and highly celebrated Fiasco Theater make their Washington, DC debut with their production of Shakespeare’s clever comedy The Two Gentlemen of Verona at Folger Theatre.  This dizzying romantic adventure is a comedy filled with bandits, mistaken identity, and also the “sourest-natured” dog Crab.

When Valentine and Proteus journey from Verona for Milan, comic mayhem ensues as the two fall in and out of love with the same women. Filled with bawdy bandits, mistaken identity, and the “sourest-natured” dog Crab, Shakespeare’s romantic adventure takes a witty and compelling look at the complexities of friendship, the passions and dangers of jealousy, and the fickle nature of love.
