Regarding Kay Wisniewski's letter Nov. 7, "More subsidized housing will put 'unfair burden on schools,' " what Ms. Wisniewski fails to understand is that the people whom the county is targeting already live in the Verona. They are the working people in Columbia, people with jobs, with dreams, with aspirations, to live in a great community with good schools, and the county's purchase of the complex will not increase their population, but prevent them from being displaced. The Washington Post had an interesting article recently about certain ZIP codes, like Clarksville, which were exclusively affluent and very homogenous.

The eternal truths found in Shakespeare help explain why theater companies often like to give his plays a contemporary setting. Audiences at The Other Barn in Oakland Mills will take it in stride that the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company has taken a comedy written in the 1590s, "The Two Gentlemen of Verona," and moved it up in time to 1991. Although this sparely mounted production has a set that only amounts to a simple wood platform on the theater floor, the contemporary clothing on the characters makes them pass for circa 1990s young American adults; and there are enough guitar-strumming musical interludes to underscore the Gen X mood.

Our Oakland Mills community has been blindsided by Tom Carbo, County Director of Housing and Community Development. Calvin Ball, our own County Council representative, alerted Bill Gray, the chair of our Village Board, in September that county purchase of the Verona Apartments for below-market housing in the center of Oakland Mills was being considered. At a meeting this month to ostensibly "discuss" an idea regarding the purchase, the board was informed by Mr. Carbo that the purchase was in fact imminent.

Like most successful comedies, there's a palpable ache in "Two Gentlemen of Verona," and the Shakespeare Theatre production homes right in on it before a single word is spoken. Director Douglas Wager begins the story in Verona Beach, N.J., in the 1950s, where a group of teens is throwing a goodbye party for one of the gang, who is traveling to Milan. Good-natured horseplay between two best friends gradually escalates, until the punches and flying limbs are no longer in jest. Finally, Valentine, the bigger boy - blond, good-looking, well-heeled - triumphs over his opponent, Proteus, who is slighter, poorer and lower middle-class.

Banishing Verona, by Margot Livesey. Henry Holt. 321 pages. $24. Unanswered voice messages, missed cues, false identity, journeys, banishment, and the opposing needs of two gentlemen -- one, the heroine's brother, the other, her lover ... the course of true love is anything but smooth in Margot Livesey's fifth novel, Banishing Verona. Little is resolved in this romantic comedy, which, like Shakespeare's The Two Gentlemen of Verona, contains almost every cul-de-sac imaginable -- some expressed with vivid metaphors: "He felt as [if]

The garage is populated by the manager of the Double Rush messenger service, Johnny Verona (Robert Pastorelli)

Maya Rudolph's subtle, lyrical portrait of a patient wife and expectant mother enlivens and elevates Away We Go, an erratic couple-on-a-quest film. It stars Rudolph and John Krasinski of The Office as the very pregnant Verona and the bright, oblivious Burt, a stable yet eccentric pair seeking the right place to deliver and raise their first baby. Rudolph's performance registers as a gift partly because it's so unexpected. As Verona, Rudolph emits a vital awareness even when she's desperate or withdrawn.

Shakespeare wrote about dogs several times (our headline is from "The Merchant of Venice"), but only one of his plays features a dog with a name. Until March 17, you can catch that show -- "The Two Gentlemen of Verona" -- and the stage debuts of two local pups. Norton and Ralph are King Charles spaniels raised from puppyhood by Chesapeake Shakespeare Company backstage manager Amanda Bennett, and for the next few weeks, they'll assume the role of Crab the Dog in the show, which runs at The Other Barn, 5851 Robert Oliver Place, Columbia.

Here are some of the props that crop up in Center Stage's exuberant production of the 1971 rock musical Two Gentlemen of Verona: a giant inflatable pink heart, a minimotorcycle, a sofa shaped like huge red lips, a tree with bright green balloons as foliage, a laptop computer, a skateboard, a "Believe" sign and a pair of inflatable dolls with the faces of Richard Nixon and George Bush. If this seems a far cry from Shakespeare, it should. The musical - with a score by Hair's Galt MacDermot, lyrics by John Guare and a libretto by Guare and Mel Shapiro - is an uninhibited, multicultural, summer-of-love, anti-war, flower-power adaptation of the early Shakespearean comedy.

A rock musical and the national premiere of an award-winning British drama will be among the offerings at Center Stage for the 2004-2005 season. In recent years, the theater's lineup has often included a Shakespeare play and a musical. Next season, it will have two in one when it produces Two Gentlemen of Verona, the 1972 Tony Award-winning rock musical with music by Hair composer Galt MacDermot and a book by John Guare and Mel Shapiro. Reached in New York, artistic director Irene Lewis, who announced the two shows in a letter to subscribers, described the musical as "a delicious piece," that, like Hair, "just bursts with every color, size, shape of kid - and love."

VERONA, N.J. - In a corner of the Annin & Co. flag factory here, 19 miles from where the World Trade Center once stood, Kishawn Carter, 24, a New Jersey native, works beside Samy Yousef, 45, an immigrant from Egypt, talking about Osama bin Laden, the Middle East and war. While they talk, they use wooden blocks to tap yellow plastic tips on the top of black 10-inch plastic poles, then drop the completed staffs into a box. At the pace of 200 an hour, Carter...

The Crisis The Justice Department will seek the death penalty for Zacarias Moussaoui, charged with conspiring to commit the Sept. 11 attacks. Health officials are debating whether Americans should be vaccinated against smallpox in case that disease, now eradicated, is used in a bioterrorism attack. A federal report on the collapse of the World Trade Center towers blames an intense fire that burned as high as 2,000 degrees, combined with failures in fireproofing, the sprinkler system and the water supply for hoses.
