By William Shakespeare
Directed by Paul Mason Barnes

2011–2012 Mainstage Season

The Story

Mistaken identities, outlandish disguises and musical merriment take two sets of twins on a raucous journey through the streets of New Orleans in one of Shakespeare’s cleverest comedies. Antipholus has no idea his long-lost twin brother has arrived in town, not to mention that his servant, Dromio, apparently has a long-lost twin as well. When all four converge on the Big Easy for Mardi Gras, events take a hilarious turn in a comic adventure of madcap mayhem.
