by Carlo Goldoni, translated and adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher and Paolo Emilio Landi
directed by Paolo Emilio Landi
Thompson Theatre - Roselle Center for the Arts
13-14 Season


Hilarity abounds in this madcap Italian comedy of lovers, lawyers, servants, and twenty-seven plates of meatballs.  Betrothed couple Silvio and Clarice are devastated when a previous fiancé reappears, back-from-the-dead.  In this wild farce things, and people, are not what they seem – disguises, traps, and tricks produce a whirlwind of mass confusion.  At the center of this mirth is Truffaldino, the scheming – and perpetually hungry – servant who concocts a zany scheme to double his wages (and his meals) by serving two masters at once.  This commedia dell’arte masterpiece, hilariously adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher and Paolo Emilio Landi, promises laugh-out-loud mayhem that shouldn’t be missed!



REP VIDEO: Director Paolo Emilio Landi discusses Commedia dell'Arte in the REP's production of The Servant of Two Masters. REP VIDEO:REP actor Lee Ernst describes the distinct comedic styles of the Commedia characters in The Servant of Two Masters.
