Description

Written in 1938, this musical reimagining of "The Comedy of Errors" was the first American musical comedy based on a Shakespeare play. Freely adapted by legendary Broadway impresario George Abbott and featuring standards from Rodgers & Hart, "The Boys from Syracuse" infuses the ancient setting of Greco-Roman Ephesus with the burlesque and vaudeville spirit of 1930s New York City. A classic farce about mistaken identity, divided families, and confused love, this production vibrates with the creative energy of the traditionally marginalized, ethnically diverse community of artists who came together to produce this meaningful farce in the months leading up to World War II.
