About this project

The Shakespearean Jazz Show is an immersive theatrical/musical celebration revitalizing and redefining classical theatre. The show features a talented ensemble of musicians, singers, artists, puppeteers, and dancers from Boston’s Emerson College and Berklee College of Music. The Nine Worthies is the name of the band (inspired from Shakespeare’s Love’s Labor’s Lost) and the ensemble works together to provide an unforgettable parade of Shakespearean sonnets, songs, and scenes composed to original "New Orleans" jazz.
