Come enjoy Shakespeare’s “The Comedy Of Errors” as told by Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart and George Abbott in this concert presentation of THE BOYS FROM SYRACUSE. Showtunes Theatre teams up with Village Theatre to bring this uproarious script and heavenly score to life on the stage of the Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall March 23rd, 24th and 25th.
Twins! More twins! Women – chased and chaste! The first musical ever adapted from Shakespeare remains the most madcap musical farce ever to animate the stage. Antipholus and his wily servant, Dromio, travel to Ephesus in search of their respective twins, from whom they were separated in a shipwreck. Naturally, they are immediately taken for their brothers and we’re off and running on a riotous chase from marketplace to marital bed. Perplexed wives, disgruntled courtesans, outraged constables and an audience roaring with laughter are left in its wake before this show’s tangled web is unraveled.
The musical premiered on Broadway in 1938 and Off-Broadway in 1963, with later productions including a West End run in 1963 and in a Broadway revival in 2002. A film adaptation was released in 1940. Well-known songs from the score include “Falling in Love with Love,” “This Can’t Be Love” and “Sing for Your Supper.”
