.Irreverent Elizabethan fun--with a soundtrack

 

A duke. A mysterious prophecy. Two daughters: one mobbed by suitors, the other . . . not so much. And all set to the beat of 1980s pop icons the Go-Go’s? An Elizabethan love story is turned on its head in this exuberant musical by playwright Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q, The Further Adventures of Hedda Gabler), inspired by Sir Philip Sidney’s 16th-century pastoral romance, Arcadia. This world premiere promises a delicious mix of razor-sharp wordplay, infectious songs and romantic surprises
