Master of Two Servants Plays at Yale

Yale Repertory Theatre presents The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, adapted by Constance Congdon from a translation by Christina Sibul at the University Theatre, 222 York Street, March 12-April 3. Opening Night is Thursday, March 18.

The cast includes Sarah Agnew (Beatrice), Will Cobbs (Waiter), Liam Craig (Brighella/Porter), John Treacy Egan (Il Dottore), Steven Epp (Truffaldino), Allen Gilmore (Pantalone), Andy Grotelueschen (Silvio), Chris Henry (Waiter), Jesse J. Perez (Florindo), Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Clarice)and Liz Wisan (Smeraldina).

The Servant of Two Masters features original musical by Chris Curtis and Aaron Halva, sets by Katherine Akiko Day, costumes by Valérie Thérèse Bart, lighting by Chuan-Chi Chan, and sound by Nathan Roberts. Emmy Miller and Hannah Rae Montgomery are the production dramaturgs; Rick Sordelet is the fight director; Beth McGuire is the vocal and dialect coach; and Bree Sherry is the stage manager.

About the show:
Identities are mistaken, engagements are broken, and lovers are reunited 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 physical comedy and mayhem is directed by Christopher Bayes, whose hilarious choreography is featured in the hit Broadway, and soon-to-be Off-Broadway stage production of Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps.
