The cast is excellent, and the decision to set the play as a sort-of 50s television sitcom was inspired. I laughed a lot and really enjoyed the production.

Pretty good production. The leads were excellent especially the actress playing Luciana. The weakest links came from the actors portraying Angelo and Balthasar. It was almost as if you can see them thinking about acting... like they were trying...continued

Quotes & Highlights

Stay for a talkback with the ensemble after each performance!


The NVA Ensemble takes on Shakespeare in this uproarious farce about mistaken identity, love and mayhem. Imagine entering a strange land where all of the inhabitants are alien to you, but you are well known, even notorious, to them all. So is the story of Antipholus and his servant Dromio, when they visit a small town and accidentally step into the lives of their long-lost identical twins. A hilarious escapade for the audience and the actors together.
