A stupendous, tremendous, momentous ad-RAP-tation of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, THE BOMB-ITTY OF ERRORS mixes Shakespeare’s poetry with the family-friendly beats of early hip hop. When two sets of twins separated at birth stumble upon each other, hilarity ensues. Mistaken identities, mismatched romances, pratfalls, live DJ-ing, and quick character changes tell a rollicking story of families: the families we make and the families we’re born into. So, to the families and the fam, to music aficionados and poetry lovers, to fans of Hamilton or Will Shakespeare, to audiences of every age, this is our invitation, our promise: THE BOMB-ITTY OF ERRORS is the best party you’ll go to this summer.
