1963 Off-Broadway Revival
Rodgers & Hart’s The Boys from Syracuse made its off-Broadway premiere at Theatre Four on April 15, 1963, playing a total of 500 performances. Directed by Christopher Hewett and choreographed by Bob Herget, the production featured Stuart Damon, Clifford David, Danny Carroll and Julienne Marie. The revival earned two Theatre World Awards and the Obie Award for Best Musical.
Featuring the cast of Christopher Hewett’s celebrated 1963 off-Broadway production of The Boys from Syracuse, this original cast recording was conducted by René Wiegert, with new orchestrations by Larry Wilcox. The album was recorded and released on Capitol records in 1963 shortly after the show’s April 15 opening.
