Variations On Shakespeare
An Evening of Songs Inspired by the Bard
Monday, August 4, 2008
at New World Stages
340 West 50th Street
"VARIATIONS ON SHAKESPEARE" will be hosted/mc'd by Tony Award winner Mark Rylance (Boeing-Boeing) and will feature appearances by some of Broadway's hottest stars!
The works of William Shakespeare have always served as a true inspiration for many playwrights and composers over the years, with some of the most famous musical theatre pieces inspired by the Bard's plays. Kiss Me, Kate was Cole Porter's musical transformation of the classic Taming of the Shrew, and gave us such great songs as "Too Darn Hot" and "So In Love." The Comedy of Errors was the play that inspired Rodgers and Hart to pen the hit musical The Boys From Syracuse and the most famous musical of them all, West Side Story, is a beautiful musical re-telling of Romeo And Juliet set in 1950's New York City.
