Performance Dates
Celebrated director Christopher Bayes restages this magical comedy at the Shakespeare Theatre Company after a sold-out run at Yale Repertory Theatre. Identities are mistaken, engagements are broken and lovers are reunited in Carlo Goldoni’s commedia dell’arte masterpiece. Mayhem erupts when the wily—and chronically hungry—servant Truffaldino hatches a zany scheme to double his wages (and his meals) by serving two masters at once. The New York Times declared, “The laughter would be quite enough to propel The Servant of Two Masters onto a theater lover’s must-see list. But then there’s the magic… Now that’s theater!”
