"Laugh out loud funny…Although the Troubies don't follow Shakespeare to the letter, they may get closer to the Elizabethan spirit than more respectful productions. They shamelessly pratfall and ad-lib, but they're also proficient, mesmerizing performers in a commedia dell'arte mode…when Walker and his players to the text straight, they really sell it." - LA Times

About the Show

Troubadour Theater Compan
Directed by Matt Walker

Opening Night is March 23 at 8pm.

The Ovation Award-winning theater company is putting their signature spin on Shakespeare's rockin' romantic comedy Two Gentlemen of Verona. When friends Proteus and Valentine give up another Saturday in the Park and head to the big city of Milan, Proteus' love Julia protests with, "If You Leave Me Now who will Colour My World?" Proteus proclaims, "I Don't Wanna Live Without Your Love but I'm A Man and must go!" Meanwhile in Milan, the sour-on-love Valentine finds new Beginnings when he encounters the lovely Silvia. But when Proteus meets Silvia, he falls for her as well, and his beloved Julia is NOT such a Hard Habit to Break. Mayhem ensues when both men tell Silvia, "You're the Inspiration". This is a Once in a Lifetime chance and the Troubies are Wishing You Were Here!
