THE VERONA PROJECT
Written and Directed by Amanda Dehnert
October 19 - November 4, 2012
Josephine Louis Theater
The Verona Project is an electric hybrid of theatre and live concert infused with original indie-folk-rock music. A modern fable inspired by Shakespeare's first comedy, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, the show takes an honest look at surviving love and loss. Seen through the eyes of a group of young musicians, The Verona Project explores the journeys we all take and the people we eventually become.
Prior to the AMTP production, The Verona Project received its world premiere at California Shakespeare Theater in Orinda, CA.
AMTP's production is supported in part by funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Illinois Arts Council, the Alumnae of Northwestern, and the National Alliance for Musical Theatre's National Fund for New Musicals.
