The Servant of Two Masters
after Carlo Goldoni, adapted by Michael Hill-Kirkland

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!
