Professional actors to perform Shakespeare

WESTPORT - Westport's annual Shakespeare-in-the-Park Festival presents its second production of the season Labor Day weekend with Shakespeare's "The Two Gentlemen of Verona," directed by Rebecca Lincoln. The single performance will take place Sunday, Sept. 5, at 3 p.m. at the Performance Pavilion in Ballard Park.
