A Shakespearean Situation Comedy (Arkangel Shakespeare) Jun 15, 2007
Two pairs of identical twins separated at birth come together in the same city, neither pair aware that the other is there. This sets the stage for a maddening series of mistaken-identity mishaps. The mistakes at first are small but annoying, but as the play progresses, they become larger and more serious until both pairs of twins are bound and imprisoned, and then a series of low-probability coincidences puts everything aright.
As I listened to the play, I couldn't help but think "The Three Stooges meet Lucy and Ricky." Unlike most modern situation comedies, "A Comedy of Errors" relies rather heavily on slapstick humor. At first the plot was a little off-putting, but as the situation became more and more tangled, it became more and more interesting, until at the end Shakespeare's deus-ex-machina resolution was quite pleasant. One of Shakespeare's better comedies, done superbly by Arkangel Shakespeare.
Outstanding! Aug 7, 2006
An outstanding performance of one of my favorite plays: The sound effects added a slapstick comedy feel to the play, making the scenery almost come alive as you listen. If you are not familiar with the play, I highly recommend reading it first, as I feel you will enjoy it far more.
