“A ridiculous amount of fun”, The Bomb-itty of Errorsopens at the Belfry in August.

 

Victoria, British Columbia…From August 5 – 24, 2014 the Belfry Theatre will present the musical comedy ad-rap-tation, The Bomb-itty of Errors. Directed by Catriona Leger, The Bomb-itty of Errors stars David Kaye (Belfry debut), Jameson M. Parker (Redand Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) at the Belfry), Brian Cochrane (Belfry debut), Niko Koupantsis (Belfry debut) and DJ Oker Chen (Belfry debut). The Bomb-itty of Errors was originally produced by Twenty Something Theatre and Temporary Thing.

 

Based on Shakespeare’s comedy of mistaken identities, The Comedy of ErrorsThe Bomb-itty of Errors infuses Elizabethan times with hip-hop flavour. The actors sing, rap, and rhyme catchy and laugh-out-loud songs that retain much of Shakespeare’s original text—all while a DJ spins original music onstage.

 

The Bomb-itty of Errors is advertised as a hip-hop version of “Willy Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors.” But never fear. If you don’t know hip-hop from boogie-woogie, you’re still likely to have a good time with the infectious fun generated by this engaging new show. Chicago Tribune

 

Nothing short of brilliant. Clever writing, rhythmic flow, witty musical allusions and intelligent humor…thoroughly entertaining. MTV
