    Interesting, but don’t see the connection with Shakespeare. We enjoy so much the work of James. I use to live in Boston, but I hope one day to go and shake his hand.

    However I thought that Juliet and Romeo were in Verona, which is also so beautiful.

      I don’t see here they even gave an answer to the question. However, you are quite correct. Mantua is associated with that play, but also with Two Gentleman of Verona.

    The play is Romeo and Juliette.

    The quiz is obviously the hook but an answer would be nice.
