The Inwood Shakespeare Festival presents a free outdoor mounting of what many believe to be the Bard's earliest play, a romp with star-crossed lovers, cross-dressing, betrayal, intrigue, clowns, and a real dog! More…
'Two Gentlemen of Verona' is a pastiche of comedy, romance, and melancholy about the adventures of two pals: Valentine and Proteus. When Proteus falls in love with his best friend's girlfriend, the two men find themselves torn between the bonds of male friendship and romance. Presented for free in Inwood Hill Park.
