A Concert Performance—in music and dance
In collaboration with Commonwealth Shakespeare Company
Christopher Wilkins, conductor
Steven Maler, director
Yo-El Cassell, choreographer
A landmark Broadway musical from the swing era is reborn on the Esplanade. The Boys from Syracuse,based on Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, is often considered the finest of all Rodgers and Hart creations. Familiar songs include ‘Falling in Love with Love,’ ‘Sing for Your Supper,’ and ‘This Can’t Be Love.’ This ‘concert performance with dancing’ marks only the 2nd professional performance of the inimitable big-band style original 1938 orchestrations.
*If it also rains on September 1, this concert will be moved indoors to a rain location to be announced.
