The Servant of Two Masters

By Carlo Goldoni
adaptation by

Directed by Robert Currier

Patrick Flick as Truffaldino, a servant 2001


Producer's Perspective:

What really excited us about this production was that it was one of the first where we felt we had a fully professional-quality cast. With six Equity contracts and only nine principal characters, we assembled a company of actors with no weak links that could not be topped in Marin. Pat Flick was a wonderfully energetic and inventive Truffaldino, beloved by the audience as well as by Marie Shell who created a charmingly funny Smeraldina. Marcia Pizzo and Scott Coopwood were a powerfully sexy couple in the roles of Beatrice and Florindo. (Playing two 'pants-roles' in repertory took a toll on Marcia's voice, but she was amazingly resilient.)
