Another pleasant surprise from SW Shakespeare! The Comedy of Errors was hilarious. Set in Miami Beach in the 1980’s with a soundtrack that included Abba and others of that era, it was laugh out loud funny. The guy behind me had a hard time stopping laughing!
Miami Beach was actually South Beach, which allowed all sorts of gay stereotypes to jump to the fore, but all done with a light touch so they remained funny and not insulting. Who knew that Dromio had a thing for Antipholus? But then, why not? The cast was uniformly good and all got a chance to do some bit that added to the fun – tap dancing Abbess, Karaoke bag lady, complete with shopping cart, hippy Dr Pinch.
