ANW Does The Comedy of Errors

Feb 28, 2011

I have given up trying to pun, in the titles of these posts, on A Noise Within, Southern California’s premier classical theater repertory company. Let’s just cut to the chase: they’re doing Shakespeare, which is about as classical as the repertory gets (except for those Greek dudes, though very few people perform those in the original anymore). Specifically, they’re doing The Comedy of Errors, which is among Shakespeare’s bleakest tragedies. It begins with all of humanity committing suicide, and ends with the snuffing out of the sun. Shakespeare was all about ironic titles.

This is the fourth play (fifth if you count those two weeks of Noises Off) in ANW’s 19th and final season in Glendale. As theater fans and regular readers no doubt already know, they are moving to East Pasadena next year. The Comedy of Errors opens on March 5th, and will run until Saturday, May 14th.
