GLYNN CEO AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Run date: 1/27/17 ; A Frank De Pasquale Venture www, The There are No Errors in this Comed'v The Comedy of Errors through February 12th Hartford Stage, 50 Church Street, Hartford, CT Directed by Darko Tresnjak Louis Tucci, Paula Leggatt Chase, Returning home after viewing the Saturday matinee perfor- mance of the Hartford Stage production of Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors, I wanted to immediately sit down and write my review. There was one problem however; I could not stop laughing long enough to focus on my keyboard. Director Darko Tresnjak has taken one of the Bard's earliest plays and set it in 1965 Greece while adding music and dance to it. From the opening curtain, when Paula Leggett Chase steps out and sings a sexy and sultry "Never on a Sunday~ in thebest tradition oLl~elina Mercouri, t knew this was going to be some- thing very special. The set, which was designed by Darko, is breathtaking. Save your money on a ticket to Greece, you are there when you step into the theater. The colors are vibrant, with boats docked at the foot of the stage, the Phoenix and the Priory rising behind it. The Greek country- side as a backdrop is something to behold. It is the Greece of Topkapi and Zorba. But what would Greece be without music and dance? Drawing on original songs from the period and using.on- stage musicians playing on a bouzouki and an accordion for much of it (some of the music is piped in and also great), the audience becomes a part of the experience. Throw in some moussaka and baklava for good measure. Now top this off with Shake- speare's madcap story about two sets of twins and the mix ups that ensue, along with an outstanding cast, and you have one of the best plays on stage so far this season. Sprinkle some Marx Brothers-flavored comedy on top and the laughter never stops. How often do you get to see a Shakespeare play with scuba divers, surfboards, beach balls, rubber chickens, and a human battering ram? All this, while retaining the original lan- guage and story. And, all taking place within a 24 hour period! Trying to choose a particular moment or actor to praise is too difficult with such a fine production. Everyone is just wonderful and spot on. See- ing so many actors staying in synch while so many different and crazy things are occur- ring is m .ary.elo.u.s. Tb4s. p!ay is and Alexander Sovrosky. fast-paced, constantly funny, musically delightful, and filled with wonderful dance numbers. It is a joy to watch. The lighting and choreography are up to the usual high standards of the Hartford as well. When someone asks me to pick a Shakespeare play for their first time experience, I don't suggest The Comedy of Errors. It is funny, but not with the depth of his later work. However, after seeing this pro- duction, I can recommend it without any reservations. Whether you have stayed away from Shakespeare because you thought he wrote in an- other language, or you are a lifetime Bardologist, you owe it to yourself to make the trip to the Hartford Stage. If I lived closer, I would see it again and probably again. Darko Tresnjak and the Hartford Stage have never disappointed me with their Shakespeare productions. There are many excellent com- panies in New England per- forming these works, but The Hartford Stage ranks at the top. After attending a performance, I guarantee you will leave the theater with tears of laughter streaming down your face, the smell of the Mediterranean in your nose, a hunger for some moussaka, and an urge to cry out, "Zorba, teach me to dance!"
