Musicals Tonight presents the classic 1938 musical from Rodgers and Hart, loosely based upon Shakespeare’s 'The Comedy of Errors.' More…
Identical twins Antipholus of Ephesus and Antipholus of Syracuse, were separated from each other in a shipwreck as young children. Their servants, both named Dromio, are also long-separated identical twins. When the pair from Syracuse come to Ephesus, a comedy of errors and mistaken identities ensues when the wives of the Ephesians, Adriana, and her servant Luce, mistake the two strangers for their husbands. Adriana's sister Luciana and the Syracuse Antipholus fall in love. But all ends happily.
See it if you love Rodgers&Hart and want to see one of their funniest. The intelligence level of the libretto puts 2018 shows to shame. Run to see it!
Don't see it if You need traditional (read same old, same old) treatments to your revivals. This was a chancy thing to do, and it succeeded magnificently.
See it if You love Rogers and a Hart and camp and slap-stick and cross-dressing and vogueing and great songs and did I say camp?
Don't see it if If you like your musicals straight, literally and figuratively.
See it if You'd like to see a original and creative 'take' on a Rodgers and Hart classic with a wonderful score.
Don't see it if Farce is not your thing.
See it if you want to see a seldom-produced, obscure musical (which is Musicals Tonight's forte). Actors try gamely but not Rogers & Hart's finest.
Don't see it if you mind bare bones staging, costumes. 1 or 2 memorable songs but otherwise dated, confusing. Based on Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.
