The Servant of Two Masters
after Carlo Goldoni, adapted by Michael Hill-Kirkland
The Servant of Two Masters
This show has now finished

Carlo Goldoni's rollicking 18th century Italian farce careens headlong into 21st century American pop culture. Pratfalls and puddings to the face meet comic sword-fights, rock'n'roll, and sexy waitresses serving food, glorious food! Adapter/director Michael Kirkland has doubled down on Goldoni's subversion of the traditional commedia dell'arte. This 18th century meets 21st century mash-up is a tasty Italian-American buffet featuring cantankerous masters, silly servants, desperate young lovers, rock'n'roll parodies, teen-angst, cross-dressing gender confusion, and the intricate and irreverent physical and verbal comic routines for which commedia dell'arte is famous. Buon appetito!
