Following a highly successful production of "Love's Labour's Lost" on Boston Common, Commonwealth Shakespeare Company will delight Boston audiences one more time to close out the summer season. On Wednesday evening, August 31st at 7:00 PM at the Hatch Shell on the Esplanade, CSC will join forces with Boston Landmarks Orchestra to offer a concert version of the classic Rogers and Hart musical, "The Boys From Syracuse."
(FYI - because of my recent knee surgery and recuperation, I was only able to attend one of the final performances of "Love's Labours Lost," so could not post a review before the show closed. It was one of the best productions in the 20 year history of CSC's Shakespeare on Boston Common.)
Plan to join me on the Esplanade on the 31st for what promises to be a memorable night. Elliot Norton and IRNE aware winner Jennifer Ellis, fresh from her triumphant singing of the National Anthem at Fenway Park, leads a stellar cast.
