BY CHRISTOPHER BYRNE | If Ron Chernow’s weighty biography “Hamilton” seemed an unlikely source for a smash hit musical, how much more unexpected is it that Philip Sidney’s 1590 five-book epic, “The Arcadia,” should be the source material for the deliciously hilarious “Head Over Heels?” Sidney’s tale is ponderous, to say the least, and getting through […]
