Latest Worker Bees Theatre Discount: The Boys from Syracuse

42nd St. Moon is opening Rodgers &Hart's The Boys from Syracuse this week. Previews start on Wednesday, and it opens on Saturday. It is a charming and very funny musical from the Classic Broadway era.

First of all it's based on Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors, so it's coming from some pretty good source material. And the score is full of gems you will recognize. This Can't Be Love, Falling in Love with Love and Sing For Your Supper are three of the most renowned numbers. Supper, in particular, is a show-stopping female trio with some swingin' jazz harmonies. Swingin' jazz harmonies in a show set in ancient Greece? Yeah, I know...but it works.

I was in this show 14 years ago at Foothill Music Theatre. I have very fond memories of the shows, and the performers I worked with. The Moonies will have a lot to live up to, but I'm sure they can handle it.

As always, you can get some behind-the-scenes peeks via the 42nd St. Moon Blog.

You can also get 20% off all Regular tix for the show (excluding Sunday matinees) by using the promotion code ONLINE when you call for tix at 415-978-2787. Details are here.
