The Servant of Two Masters at the Guthrie
Under the direction of former Guthrie company member Christopher Bayes, The Servant of Two Masters stars Steven Epp of Theatre de la Jeune Lune as the clever servant Truffaldino and Sarah Agnew as Beatrice, a strong-willed master. The comedy, written by Venetian playwright Carlo Goldoni, tells the tale of Truffaldino, a servant interested in doubling his pay by serving two masters. The always-hungry Truffaldino encounters many hilarious situations on his search for something to fulfill him.
The satirical performance features a versatile cast that puts its talents to work singing, chicken dancing, juggling fish (?!) and referencing pop culture. Hailed by The Washington Post as a “bowlful of joy,” The Servant of Two Masters is sure to satisfy your comedy theater cravings. 7:30 p.m. $29-$55. (Or rush tickets go on sale 15-30 minutes before the show.) —RO
