Photo Flash: New Peek at THE SERVANT OF TWO MASTERS in Rehearsal at Theatre for a New Audience

Previews begin this Sunday, November 6, at 7:30pm at Polonsky Shakespeare Center, 262 Ashland Place, for Theatre for a New Audience's production of The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni adapted by Constance Congdon from a translation by Christina Sibul and featuring Steven Epp. Directed by Christopher Bayes, The Servant of Two Masters opens Wednesday, November 16, and is scheduled to run through Sunday, December 4. BroadwayWorld has a fresh sneak peek at the company in rehearsal below!

Performing in The Servant of Two Masters are Liam Craig (Brighella), Aidan Eastwood (Waiter), Steven Epp (Truffaldino), Andy Grotelueschen (Dottore), Eugene Ma (Silvio), Allen Gilmore (Pantalone), Orlando Pabotoy (Florindo), Adina Verson (Clarice), Liz Wisan (Beatrice), Sam Urdang (Waiter), and Emily Young (Smeraldina). Original music is performed by Aaron Halva and Christopher Curtis.

Written in 1745, The Servant of Two Masters is one of the great dramatist Carlo Goldoni's most popular plays, preserving in scripted form the antic energy, ribald humor and improvisational immediacy of commedia dell'arte.

The Servant of Two Masters has been produced only once before in English in New York City, Off-Off Broadway in the 1970s. Theatre for a New Audience's production is the first major Off-Broadway production in English. One Man, Two Guvnors, a modern adaptation, played on Broadway in 2012. Giorgio Strehler (1921-1997), one of the 20th century's greatest theater and opera directors, was principally responsible for raising Servant's profile in the modern era. He directed six different productions over four decades, several of which toured internationally. A version titled Arlecchino, Servant of Two Masters played in Italian at Lincoln Center in 2005.

The creative team includes set designer Katherine Akiko Day, costume designer Valerie Therese Bart, lighting designer Chuan-Chi Chan, Sound Designers Charles Coes and Nathan A. Roberts, original music by Aaron Halva and Christopher Curtis, hair and makeup designer Dave Bova, properties supervisor Eric Reynolds, fight director Rick Sordelet, casting director Deborah Brown, and production stage manager Sonja Thorson.
