Shakespeare Festival St. Louis is thrilled to present a limited run of the new musical, "Dress the Part," Jan. 29 through Feb. 15 at the Ready Room in St. Louis’s Grove neighborhood.

This is an exciting partnership with the creators of the musical, Q Brothers Collective, to bring a fresh version of the play for it’s St. Louis premier. GQ and JQ (founding Q Brothers) will direct this retelling of Shakespeare’s Two Gentleman of Verona. The performance stars two actors and a DJ playing a large cast of characters that include Proteus and Valentine as they move through high school at Verona College Prep and learn a thing or two about love, friendship and loyalty.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 13 and can be purchased online at Single tickets prices range $20-35 and each Wednesday night performance will be “Pay What You Can.” For more information, contact Shakespeare Festival St. Louis at 314-631-9800 or visit
