Photo Flash: First Look at Tennessee Shakespeare's THE COMEDY OF ERRORS

THE COMEDY OF ERRORS by William Shakespeare, directed by Tony Simotes, is being produced by Tennessee Shakespeare Company in partnership with the University of Memphis' Dept. of Theatre & Dance at the University of Memphis Theatre Building (3745 Central Avenue), now through June 18. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Featuring a professional cast of actor-musicians and directed by Shakespeare & Company co-founder Tony Simotes, the production sets Shakespeare's shortest, wildest play in the exotic and dangerous Greece of 1600. The story features two sets of identical twins, who, along with their parents, were separated shortly after birth on the high seas. Now, more than 20 years later, Antipholus (the master) and Dromio (his servant) come to a new land that is hostile to foreigners. Little do they know, their father, chasing after them, is imprisoned and facing execution for crossing the border until he can find someone to pay his bail. And little do they know, their identical twin brothers live here! It makes for the funniest, most bizarre day in the country until a final familial revelation changes everyone's lives forever.
