Guthrie Theater
12/1-1/20/2013
A classic comic masterpiece, directed by former Guthrie company member Christopher Bayes and starring comedic genius Steven Epp (Theatre de la Jeune Lune), The Servant of Two Masters makes its way to the Guthrie following critically acclaimed runs at Yale Repertory and Shakespeare Theatre Company. Chock-full of mistaken identities and broken engagements, mayhem erupts when the wily and chronically hungry servant Truffaldino hatches a zany scheme to double his wages (and his meals) by serving two masters at once. The Washington Post hailed this Servant as "deliriously happy-making" and a "bowlful of joy!"
