Two Gentlemen of Verona

Launce and Crab the dog


Launce’s love for his dog, Crab, and his willingness to accept punishment for Crab’s miscues is Shakespeare at his best. Dogs have always been beloved in England and I’m sure Shakespeare was aware of Crab’s “box office appeal.” Teaming up a dog with a comic character onstage was money in the bank.








Even though Two Gentlemen of Verona is an early work, it is a very funny and lively treatment of the follies of love. Let the young poet’s words wash over you as you listen for hints of future greatness – and experience again the shallow depth of fresh young love
