Two Gentlemen of Chicago

Falcon Theatre
4252 Riverside Drive Burbank

The Ovation Award-winning theater company is putting their signature spin on Shakespeare’s rockin' romantic comedy Two Gentlemen of Verona. When friends Proteus and Valentine give up another Saturday in the Park and head to the big city of Milan, Proteus' love Julia protests with, "If You Leave Me Now who will Colour My World?” Proteus proclaims, "I Don't Wanna Live Without Your Love but I'm A Man and must go!” Meanwhile in Milan, the sour-on-love Valentine finds new Beginnings when he encounters the lovely Silvia. But when Proteus meets Silvia, he falls for her as well, and his beloved Julia is NOT such a Hard Habit to Break. Mayhem ensues when both men tell Silvia, "You're the Inspiration". This is a Once in a Lifetime chance and the Troubies are Wishing You Were Here!

  Review Round-Up

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...In “Two Gentlemen of Chicago” at the Falcon Theatre, the Troubadour Theater Company sets Shakespeare’s lesser comedy “Two Gentlemen of Verona” to the greatest hits of the band Chicago, irreverently mixing the incongruous sources to create a theatrical hybrid that, despite being possibly more entertaining than either, manages to honor both."

"...The latest Troubadour Theater Company lunacy folds Chicago’s songbook into the Bard’s romantic comedy about two Veronese chums turned rivals via the Troubies’ signature commedia, musical comedy, standup, and carnival tactics, with results at once hilariously irreverent and classically disciplined."

Glendale News Press - Recommended

"...There’s one other vital element in the company’s success. Walker and other accomplished troupe members are able to effectively deliver Shakespeare’s lines as written. Amid all the hilarity and slapstick, that familiarity with text and form can add occasional notes of unexpected emotional resonance."

"...If you like Shakespeare: go. If you hate Shakespeare: go. If you love or loathe Peter Cetera: go. If you dislike ecstatic, adorable, hard-working mega-talents willing to entertain you by all of a thousand means at their disposal: go anyway; this show might just find your pulse."
