Special note: This production is a part of Shakespeare 400 as a part of Shakespeare's 400th birthday at The University of Hong Kong. This was also performed to worldwide scholars at the RIDCH Conferences 2016 at The Open University of Hong Kong on June 3 2016.
What happens when you take one of Shakespeare’s earliest works and set it in the rock-and-roll 1950’s? When characters costumed like Elvis Presley and Audrey Hepburn deliver tear-inducing dramatic monologues? Throw in professionally-choreographed dances, a band playing live music and a sweet motorbike prop, and you have our production of The Two Gentlemen of Verona!
Choreography by Mandy Petty, HKAPA Dance Instructor.
Live Music by local band Grammophone.
