The Two Gentlemen of Verona will be at the Shakespeare Tavern from May 26-June 11, 2017. Given my affection for the rom-com genre, I need to make time to head out for this show. It looks like it’ll be a fun night at the theatre.
Per the summary: “Leave it to Shakespeare to hit a home run with his first crack at bat. Sparkling with wit and energy, The Two Gentlemen of Verona helped launch both his career and the rom-com genre. In fact, Two Gentlemen offers up just about everything you could ever want in a romantic comedy: moony and misguided guys, smart and resourceful gals, a road trip, a hilarious bit with a dog, and plenty of cross-dressing. Watch all the fun of this love-fueled farce, in which two best friends fall for the same woman, by way of the Atlanta Shakespeare Company at the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse.”
If you haven’t been to Shakespeare Tavern before, a tip: It’s an intimate venue, so you really can’t go wrong with any seats–I’ve tried all three price levels (Main Floor, Box Seats, Balcony), & I’ve had a good view of the production from each vantage point. The food is quite good, too–the apple crisp served during intermission is worth every calorie. Yum.
Want to go? You’ve got a few ways to save on tickets:
- While they last, you can get discount tickets to most performances of The Two Gentlemen of Verona, thanks to a deal on Goldstar.
- For regular-priced tickets, you’ll get the best deals on Thursdays & Sundays, plus students & educators save $5 on adult tickets (excluding Saturday nights), and seniors (age 65+) & military with ID save $3 off the adult ticket price for most performances. And general admission tickets are $15 each for the preview performance on May 25, 2017.
FYI re: parking: Unless it’s a Sunday or another exempt time, they’re enforcing the meters in front of the theatre, so make sure to pay if you use them. Or you can park in the Emory parking deck across the street. If you give them your ticket stub when you leave, parking should be $5.
Shakespeare Tavern is located at 499 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta.
