Last Chance to catch The Servant of Two Masters at Milwaukee Repertory Theater. Carlo Goldoni's 18th-century comedy opened Feb. 25 and ends its scheduled run March 28.
Milwaukee Rep imported three Italian commedia dell'arte experts for its production of Servant: director-adaptor Paolo Emilio Landi, movement coach and commedia dell'arte trainer Fabio Mangolini, and costume designer Santi Migneco.
Translated and adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher (Three Viewings) and Landi, this comedy of mistaken identities features two pairs of frustrated lovers and a hungry servant working for two masters to satisfy his appetite.
The show features Joe Lutton, who played the title role in the London production of The Buddy Holly Story, Tamara Scott, Carolynne Warren and resident company actors Jim Baker, Lee E. Ernst, Torrey Hanson, Peter Silbert, Deborah Staples, and Brian Vaughn.
Tickets are $8 to $32. For information, call (414) 224-9490. Next up at Milwaukee Rep will be Steven Dietz's Force of Nature, opening April 9.
