Amanda Dehnert's new musical, 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.
