The Two Gentlemen of Verona is a play about tempestuous young love. Unlike Shakespeare's more mature work on the subject, Two Gents finds the youthful joy of adolescent love and stays there in this brisk, sparkling comedy -- right up until one of the most problematic endings of the canon. Hamlet Isn't Dead's production was true to the spirit of the work while creatively employing non-traditional staging and original music to keep it fresh.
