Laughter will ring out under the stars as Shakespeare's hilarious tale of mistaken identity takes the outdoor stage. A young man and his servant arrive in town, unaware that each of them has a separated-at-birth identical twin already there. This can't end well-or maybe it can, but not before the unexpected double vision leads to furious wives, confused mistresses, scandalized family members, and general mayhem.

Portraying the very confused sets of twins are Glenn Howerton as Antipholus of Ephesus/Antipholus of Syracuse ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "The Mindy Project," "Fargo") and Tony Award nominee Rory O'Malley as Dromio of Ephesus/Dromio of Syracuse (Broadway's The Book of Mormon, Off Broadway's Nobody Loves You, Little Miss Sunshine).

Joining them are Old Globe/University of San Diego Graduate Theatre Program actors Amy Blackman (Ensemble), Lindsay Brill* (Luce), Charlotte Bydwell* (Ensemble), Lowell Byers* (Angelo), Ally Carey (Ensemble), Jamal Douglas* (Balthazar), Tyler Kent* (Dromio Double), Jake Millgard (Jailer), Makha Mthembu (1st Merchant), Daniel Petzold (Antipholus Double), Megan M.

Rosenberg (Lighting Design), Acme Sound Partners (Sound Design), Derek Cannon (Music Director), Ursula Meyer (Voice and Text Coach), Jim Carnahan, CSA (Casting), and Charles Means (Production Stage Manager).

"This gifted cast, under the inventive and witty direction of the great Scott Ellis, is sure to make this funny and wild Shakespearean comedy shine as bright as the stars in the San Diego sky," said Globe Artistic Director Barry Edelstein. "I look forward to sharing their work with the Globe's summer audiences."
