Goldoni’s raucous Italian commedia has been a blueprint for countless farces, romantic comedies & other theatrical silliness over the centuries. The play was initially constructed to allow the actors a wide berth to create their comedic business. The story really is merely an excuse for high jinks. A ridiculous servant, Truffaldino, gets himself fired by two masters at the same time. In attempting to serve them both simultaneously, he hopelessly mixes up their affairs, which are already highly suspect: one is impersonating a dead brother to secure funds owed him the other is fleeing from justice after having killed said brother… Through the magic of theater and good fortune, and a lot of craziness, it all work out in the end, but only after we’ve had a bit of fun.
