The Servant of Two Masters
Spring 2015: Sonnet Rep brought the street to the stage in this new take on Goldoni's classic comedy The Servant of Two Masters (1743) - a wild and zany farce of disguises, tricks, traps and lovers-back-from-the-dead.
This hilarious, modern adaptation featured the robust talents of some of NYC’s street performers to create a mosaic of music, beatboxing, dance and laugh-out-loud comedy that was not to be missed!
