The Two Gentlemen of Verona

FREE Shakespeare at Highland Bowl, running July 6-21
It's La-La-Land meets Prem Ratan Dhan Payo as our two modern gentlemen (and best of friends) travel abroad to explore the world and spark romance. A colorful and chaotic comedy about the pitfalls and excitement of falling in love and finding yourself.

Throw in many a grand dance number and WallByrd's signature musical flair for a cinematic spectacle befitting Rochester's FREE Shakespeare at Highland Bowl summer tradition!
