Boston Landmarks Orchestra & Commonwealth Shakespeare Company
A classic Broadway musical from the swing era is reborn on the Esplanade. The Boys from Syracuse, based on Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors, is often considered the finest of all Rodgers & Hart creations. Familiar songs include 'Falling in Love with Love,' 'Sing for Your Supper,' & 'This Can't Be Love.' This 'concert performance with dancing' marks only the 2nd professional performance of the original 1938 big-band orchestrations.
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
September 7, 2016 @ 12:00 AM
Pull up your boots and hold onto your hats when this all-dancing, all-singing, all-new production of the rip-roarin' musical comedy classic bursts onto the stage with rambunctious energy. This big, brawling, rollicking show is set in 1850s Oregon Territory and tells the story of Adam Pontipee and his backwoods brothers' unusual pursuit of brides. When Adam goes to town to get a wife, he miraculously convinces Milly to marry him that same day, and she immediately starts reforming her six rowdy brothers-in-law. When her plan to marry off the boys backfires, this exuberant rousing musical kicks into high gear with a combination of daredevil dancing and wonderful songs like "Goin' Courtin" and "Wonderful Wonderful Day."

Elvis, Jerry Lee, Perkins, Cash - They came together to make music. Their story made history. Million Dollar Quartet is the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical inspired by the electrifying true story of the famed recording session that brought together rock 'n' roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time. On December 4, 1956, these four young musicians were gathered together by Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll," at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions of all time. Million Dollar Quartet brings that legendary night to life with an irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets, friendships and celebrations, featuring timeless hits such as "Blue Suede Shoes," "Great Balls of Fire," "I Walk the Line," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Fever," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Hound Dog" and more. This thrilling musical brings you inside the recording studio with four major talents who came together as a red-hot rock 'n' roll band for one unforgettable night. It was Rock and Roll's best kept secret...until now!
