What the Critics Said
"Rolling blackouts this summer? Not to worry. There's enough energy on stage in Marin Shakespeare Company's production of Carlo Goldoni's wonderful 17th century comedy 'The Servant of Two Masters' to power all the light bulbs, computers and hot tubs in California, if not the entire country. The only problem might be that a 2 ¾ hour exposure to this nonstop laugh fest may leave you feeling a bit limp. If that happens, relax. Brilliant clowning like this is so rare that you would do well to enjoy it while you can... It [Patrick Flick's Truffaldino]'s a tour de force of comic invention that ought not to be missed... With nicely paced, imaginative staging from MSC's artistic director Robert Currier and wonderfully colorful costumes by designer Pamela Johnson, this 'Servant' is a treat for the entire family."
- Charles Brousse, Marin I.J.
"Marin Shakespeare artistic director Robert Currier should be congratulated for staging this masterpiece that revived the Commedia dell'arte... It's pure joy just to see such a great comedy staged."
