This is a modern day "rock" version of Shakespeare's, "The Two Gentlemen of Verona." Just like the original play, it deals with the foolish behavior of people in love. Friendship and infidelity with conflict between fellow friends and love are all in this updated version. It's done with music, singing, drama, comedy but with a "new twist," in the plot.
The play is at the Bruns Memorial Amphitheatre in Orinda. It's the perfect outdoor theater for Shakespeare type plays. The stage has a great backdrop with lush serene rolling green hills, majestic trees and cows grazing at a distance that looks like little moving specks. A contentment and peacefulness just falls over you, sitting there watching the show.
I beseech you all, to go see the showcase talents of Dan Clegg, Nate Trinrud, Marisa Duchowny, Arwen Anderson, Philip Mills, Elena Wright, Harold Pierce and Adam Yazbeck. Along with the creative/ingenious props and mysterious sensational plot that would have William Shakespeare's applauding "bravo."
