Old Globe's Globe For All Tour Announces THE COMEDY OF ERRORS Cast and Creatives

The Old Globe has announced the full cast and creative team of the Globe for All Tour, now in its ninth year of making theatre matter to more people. With the touring production of The Comedy of Errors, directed by Em Weinstein (In France Michelle Is a Man's Name, “The L Word: Generation Q”), this tour will feature a talented and inventive company of artists that will bring a stirring, free-admission production to various economically, geographically, and culturally diverse communities throughout San Diego County, including Old Globe Community Partner venues from San Ysidro to Oceanside and south of the border in Tijuana, Mexico. A full list of venues, dates, and times is below.

Shakespeare meets “The Jersey Shore” in the hilarious Globe for All Tour of The Comedy of Errors! A young man and his servant arrive in town, unaware that each of them has an identical twin already there. Things can't possibly end well—or maybe they can, but not before the mistaken identities lead to confused lovers, shocked family members, and all-out comic chaos. Get your hair gel and spray tan ready for one of the Bard's most outrageous comedies, filled with music and brought to life by award-winning director Em Weinstein as it visits communities across San Diego County.

“The Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare's funniest plays, and we're delighted to present this delicious show to the San Diego region as part of our 2023 Globe for All Tour,” said Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Barry Edelstein. “It's a story about mistaken identity, friendship, home, and family, and I know that the brilliant Em Weinstein's inventive and energetic direction will touch audiences deeply, even as Shakespeare fills them with laughter and joy. Globe for All is inspired by two simple but deep beliefs: that theatre is an art form for everyone, and that as the flagship arts institution of San Diego, The Old Globe should be accessible to the entire community. We remain committed to making theatre matter to more people as we make theatre that lives beyond the stage. I couldn't be more proud to share this work, nor happier to invite our neighbors to be part of it.”

The cast of The Comedy of Errors includes Jeffrey Rashad (Antipholus of Syracuse), Bernadette Sefic (Dromio of Syracuse), Jude Tibeau (Antipholus of Ephesus), Faith Carrion (Dromio of Ephesus), Victor Morris (Egeon, Doctor Pinch), Monique Gaffney (Emilia, Balthazar), Bryan Barbarin (Duke Solinus, Angelo), Becca Lustgarten (Adriana), Camilla Hsieh (Luciana), and Alejandra Villanueva (Understudy).

In addition to Em Weinstein, the creative team includes Yi-Chien Lee (Scenic and Prop Design), Charlotte Devaux (Costume Design), Erin Paige-Bhamrah (Sound Design), and Chandra R.M. Anthenill (Production Stage Manager).

Community Partners will enjoy this unique Shakespearean experience presented in non-traditional theatre venues within their own neighborhoods. The tour kicks off on Tuesday, October 17 with an opening night performance on Thursday, October 19, and runs for three weeks, from Tuesdays to Sundays, with a culminating closing night performance on November 5, 2023 in beautiful Balboa Park.

These tours offer free-of-charge admission to shows in non-theatrical venues such as gymnasiums, cafeterias, shelters, senior centers, refugee community centers, military installations, and correctional facilities, and gives audiences an intimate and compelling theatrical experience that fosters a shared sense of connection between performers and audiences. The majority of attendees often are experiencing live theatre for the very first time.

Globe for All is supported by The Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation, University of San Diego, and the Ann Davies Fund for Teaching Artists. The Old Globe's Arts Engagement programs are supported by Price Philanthropies, Qualcomm, U.S. Bank, and Viasat. Financial support is provided by The City of San Diego.

Under the leadership of Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Barry Edelstein and the Audrey S. Geisel Managing Director Timothy J. Shields, The Old Globe produces a year-round season of 16 productions of classic, contemporary, and new works on its three Balboa Park stages, including its internationally renowned Shakespeare Festival. More than 250,000 people annually attend Globe productions and participate in the theatre's artistic and arts engagement programs. Its nationally prominent Arts Engagement Department provides an array of participatory programs that make theatre matter to more people in neighborhoods throughout the region. Humanities programs at the Globe and around the city broaden the community's understanding of theatre art in all its forms. The Globe also boasts a range of new play development programs with professional and community-based writers, as well as the renowned The Old Globe and University of San Diego Shiley Graduate Theatre Program.
