Rodgers & Hart's The Boys from Syracuse
Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Lorenz Hart, Book by George Abbott
Based on "The Comedy of Errors" by William Shakespeare

The Crafton-Preyer Theatre

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. The Boys from Syracuse tells the story of two sets of identical twin brothers who are separated from each other in a shipwreck as young children. Antipholus of Syracuse and his wily servant, Dromio, are traveling in search of their long lost brothers. When they arrive in Epheseus a comedy of errors and mistaken identities ensues: perplexed wives, disgruntled courtesans, and outraged constables are left in its wake before this show's tangled web is unraveled. First performed on Broadway in 1938, the show incorporates the swing and popular music of the era in famously infectious songs like “Falling in Love with Love,” “Sing for Your Supper,” and "Oh, Diogenes!"

Directed & Choreographed by John Staniunas
