The Boys From Syracuse


"If it’s good enough for Shakespeare, it’s good enough for us."

Rodgers and Hart’s classic 1938 musical comedy adaptation of The Comedy of Errors returns to the London stage for its debut at Upstairs at the Gatehouse, in a madcap tale of mistaken identity, danger and romance in ancient Greece!

Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio, arrive in Ephesus as part of a long search for their respective identical twins from whom they were separated as children during a shipwreck. But citizens of Syracuse caught in Ephesus are subject to the death penalty. As fate has it, there’s another Antipholus who’s an established citizen of Ephesus, served by another Dromio. Confusions multiply as wives are baffled by husbands, one twin is wrongly jailed and Antipholus of Syracuse falls in love with his wife’s sister – or does he?

Arguably Rodgers and Hart’s best, the score includes the hit songs Falling in Love with Love; This Can’t Be Love and Sing for Your Supper.
