JSC's long-awaited
gender-reverse
full production of
Two Gentlemen of Verona
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Joanne Zipay

Features our signature reverse-gender casting for the first time in a romantic comedy – with all the brilliance of commedia dell’arte and, heck, even a real live dog! It doesn’t get much more fun than this. 

 

Two Gents recently played at TBG Theatre in midtown Manhattan where audiences & critics alike loved it!
