Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

The Comedy of Errors


Brandon Roberts Andrew Fonda Jackson and Mary KnollWhat the Critics Said:

“Marin Shakes' Comedy of Errors is fast-paced, veteran director mixes ancient and pop culture in hilarious production… With his return to MSC, veteran director Jim Dunn is back in fine, high-handed form with his best comedy in recent memory…”

- Mark Langton, Marin Independent Journal

‘Error’ is divine….” Marin Shakespeare’s company of actors warmed up by earlier summer productions of Lear and Alice are hot… But Brandon Roberts, new to Marin audiences, is the actor you will remember from this ‘Comedy.’ He is constantly in motion; his pratfalls and cartwheels amaze and he bites off Shakespeare’s quips as if they were his own. Roberts will no doubt – one hopes – become an active player on Bay Area stages.”

-Lee Brady, Pacific Sun

Jack Powell

“…overall this is a fun, fast-paced and colorful show. Sets, costumes, and talent come together in this ‘Errors’, making for a good reason to see Dunn’s vision of this familiar, and now refreshed, comedy.”

-Olga Azar, Marin Scope



Dr. Pinch

Bruce Viera, Brandon Roberts Sean Gunnel, Ben Knoll and Robert Currier

“…this production of ‘Comedy’ is not only the best production of the play I’ve ever seen, but the best Shakespeare production I’ve seen so far this summer….Mel Brooks would have approved of othe way anachronisms (7-11 cups, Coke machines) collide with pseudo-historical costumes (turbans, helmets, unraveling togas.) Everyone speaks in funny voices. Pratfalls abound, and even the actors in the smallest roles get a chance to give hilarious performances.”

-David Templeton, The Bohemian

The company of The Comedy of Errors

Basiulis and Andrew Fonda Jackson

"MSC’s ‘Comedy of Errors’ is a comic triumpth for director Dunn… The whole ensemble pulls through in an uproar… This is Dunn’s comic triumph… getting the best out of each performer, the whole ensemble a Rube Goldberg contraption of funny walks, crazy takes, over the top slapstick- and an audience in the aisles with laughter at a general celebration of silliness under the skies at Forest Meadows.”

-Ken Bullock, Commuter Times
