About the Show
"One of the funniest and most buzzed-about long-form shows in the nation."
-Time Out New York
"A two-man improv fantasia... gravitas comes with the duo's quick-witted play."
-The A.V. Club
On July 11, 1804, the most infamous duel in American history was fought. The rivals were Alexander Hamilton, former Secretary of Treasury of the United States, and Aaron Burr, Vice President of the United States.
In Code Duello, Boston improvisers Neil Reynolds & Matt Tucker don the wigs and waistcoats of Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. Together they recreate the greatest rivalry in American History, unscripted and uninhibited by historical accuracy.
Code Duello is a comedic, unscripted theatre piece conceived in 2006 as part of The Tribe Theater, Boston (now defunct). The first run of Code Duello was directed by David Marino, and after its first year of improv festivals, the show grew in popularity. Today, Code Duello tours nationally, and is a favorite on the improv festival circuit. Performance highlights include...
