The Boys from Syracuse has music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Lorenz Hart, is based on William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors, adapted by George Abbott. Identical twins Antipholus of Ephesus and Antipholus of Syracuse were separated in a shipwreck as children. Their servants, both named Dromio, are also long-separated identical twins. The show was the first musical based on a Shakespeare play. Well-known songs include "This Can't Be Love", "Sing For Your Supper" and "Falling In Love With Love". The Broadway show premiered in 1938 and Off-Broadway in 1963. Later productions are a 1963 West End run and Broadway revival in 2002, and a film in 1940. George Abbott directed and George Balanchine choreographed the original production, which opened at the Alvin Theater after tryouts in New Haven, Connecticut and Boston.
