Broadway and the Bard is conceived by Cariou, Barry Kleinbort and Mark Janas; and directed by Kleinbort with musical direction by Janas. Performances are at the Lion Theatre at Theatre Row and continue through March 6.
The show combines two of Cariou's passions: Shakespeare and musical comedy, blending classical soliloquies and sonnets with inventive musical pairings. It is billed as "an eighty-minute melding of superb soliloquy and memorable song by a one-of-a-kind master actor of exquisite vintage in what the Bard might refer to as 'a most rare vision.'"
Broadway and the Bard is presented by Amas Musical Theatre in association with Alan Siegel Entertainment. The creative team includes Josh Iacovelli (sets), Matt Berman (lights and sound), and Karen Parlatto (Production Stage Manager).
