    The Comedy of Errors

    Austin Shakespeare’s Free Shakespeare in the Park production is a rollicking and rambunctious fresh look at The Comedy of Errors from guest director Robert Ramirez, head of acting at the University of Texas at Austin. Produced in collaboration with the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department for the 33rd year, The Comedy of Errors will be performed under the stars at the Beverly S. Sheffield Zilker Hillside Theater Thursday – Sunday at 8 pm, May 4 – May 28, with a preview performance on Wednesday, May 3.

     

    Set in a colorful ancient world at the crossroads of cultures, The Comedy of Errors is a fast-paced tale of mistaken identities where two pairs of twins are reunited in a surprising turn of events! The comic twin Dromios are performed by Hannah Rose Barfoot, who also played a witch in last summer’s Macbeth, and Madison Weinhoffer, who is new to Austin Shakespeare. Their masters are Tony Salinas, who has performed in Shakespeare in the Park for the past two summers, and Toby Minor, who appeared in Present Laughter last fall at the Rollins Theater, where Austin Shakespeare is a resident company. Marc Pouhé, who played the title role in Macbeth, will play Egeon, the long-lost father.

     

    New to the company are Katherine Lozano as Antipholus’s wife, Adriana; Taji Senior as her sister, Luciana; Catherine Grady as Duke Solinus; John Christopher as Balthazar; and Jesus Valles as Dr. Pinch, the conjuring schoolmaster. Other Austin Shakespeare alumni include: Quinn Lara as the merchant; Kristofer Adkins as the goldsmith, Angelo; Roxy Becker as the Courtesan; and Alison Stebbins as the Abbess with a surprising secret.
