As part of the 25th Anniversary, STC celebrates Shakespeare through song and verse. Two musical interpretations of the Bard’s works will be performed in concert-style staging as additions to the regular season. These limited engagements will be presented with live music and featuring several familiar faces from STC’s stages.

The Boys from Syracuse, based on The Comedy of Errors, tells the story of identical brothers separated in a shipwreck as children. When the two brothers, their wives and servants (also long-lost identical twins) meet in Epheseus, confusion and comedy lead them to discover each other’s true identities. Adapted in the late 1930s, The Boys from Syracuse incorporates the swing and popular music of the era in famously infectious songs like “Falling in Love with Love.” Rodgers and Hart’s long-time collaboration brought other hit musicals and films such as Pal Joey and Babes in Arms.
