  • By Carlo Goldoni
  • Translated and Adapted by: Jeffrey Hatcher and Paolo Emilio Landi
  • Performance dates run Sept. 27–Oct. 7, 2018
  • Second Stage Theatre

“A modern mash-up between traditional Italian commedia del’arte and modern day sit-coms, this new version of Goldoni’s classic pits the madcap servant Truffaldino against masters, mistresses, lovers, lawyers and twenty-seven plates of fast food.  Imagine a Bob Hope comedy written by Monty Python and performed with likes of Chaplin or Keaton.”

Casting approximately 12 actors: ages 16+, all genders.
Auditions will consist of improv and movement exercises.  Please wear comfortable clothes you can easily move in to the audition.

"When their latest Broadway musical closes after the murder of three chorus girls, the writers and stars escape to Westchester to work on their next hit. Unfortunately, the murderer has followed them upstate! A comedy about murders, secret identities, and the Golden Age of Broadway, The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 is a modern classic in the vein of Clue and Murder by Death."
