The Servant of Two Masters

Translated and Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher and Paolo Emilio Landi

Directed by Michael O’Brien

 “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.”
