from the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Young Vic Theatre Company
Part of the Kennedy Center 2000-2001 Theater Season
Underpaid. Overworked. A wily Italian servant gets lucky in this classic commedia -- a co-production of London's Young Vic theater company and the Royal Shakespeare Company. Goldoni's 18th century classic gets a vibrant new life in this "sparkling, wonder-filled new version" that was pronounced "a smash hit...and an evening to cherish" (The Daily Mail) when the play opened in Stratford, England in February 2000. The production's deft handling of the split-second timing required for this ancient art got rave reviews. "Here you get a master class in fleet, mischievous comic timing...as exhilarating as a pleasure trip down the Grand Canal" (The Independent).
