Publication Date:

THE STORY: A cross between traditional Italian commedia and postmodern vaudeville, this new version of Goldoni's classic pits the madcap servant Truffaldino against masters, mistresses, lovers, lawyers and twenty-seven plates of meatballs. Imagine a Bob Hope or Woody Allen comedy written by Monty Python and performed with the physical bravura of Chaplin or Keaton - with places in the script for ad-libs and audience participation.


"Nothing short of brilliant...SERVANT does commedia proud! Gags, wisecracks, sly sexual references, acrobatics...this is the real thing!"
- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.


"A circus of styles tumbling backwards, forwards and sideways...full of ancient, hooting laughs zapped together with up-your-alley anachronisms. Shower flowers on director Paolo Landi and Jeffrey Hatcher for their re-working of the eighteenth-century Italian script. Broad, bold, whacked-out and wild! A tour-de-farce! Unforgettable, undiminished delight!"
- Milwaukee Weekly.
