Rousuck's Review: "The Comedy of Errors" at Annapolis Shakespeare

Courtesy Annapolis Shakespeare Company

Theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck joins us today with a review of the new production of William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors, by the Annapolis Shakespeare Company.

In this fast-paced farce, which many consider one of Shakespeare's funniest plays, two sets of identical twins,  separated during a shipwreck, are reunited after a succession of mistaken identities, situational shenanigans, and a steady stream of puns and antic wordplay.  The Bard's classic comedy -- reimagined in an 1890s Paris setting with a SteamPunk theme and a time-travel twist -- is directed for Annapolis Shakespeare by Sally Boyett.

The Comedy of Errors continues at Annapolis Shakespeare Company til Sunday, October 28.
