Coming Up at Lapham Center
We have reduced-price tickets for the Westport Playhouse's world premiere of the musical revue "Sing for Your Shakespeare," featuring songs from 'West Side Story,' 'Kiss Me, Kate,' 'The Boys from Syracuse,' and music and dance numbers from many greats, including Duke Ellington, Frank Loesser, jazz legend John Dankworth, and others. "Through dance, song, and verse, six amazing performers and a band of seven versatile musicians will celebrate the way Shakespeare's words inspired some of the hottest music from some of the greatest 20th Century songwriters."
