The Two Gentlemen of Verona
A young man’s folly drives the action in this Tony Award-winning musical based on what may have been Shakespeare’s first comedy: a madcap romp that bubbles over with the playwright’s own youthful energy.
A plot summary:
Julia: They do not love that do not show their love.
Lucetta: O! they love least that let men know their love. (I.ii.31)
Proteus and Valentine are the best of friends until Proteus also falls for the new object of Valentine’s affections: Silvia. Forsaking his own betrothed, Julia, Proteus sets out to betray his unsuspecting friend, only to find that both Silvia and Julia have a thing or two to teach him about loyalty and love.
