BOOMERANG THEATRE COMPANY’s return to live in-person theater is a production of William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, directed by Scott Ebersold. The Comedy of Errors will play four performances only at The Tea Room at The Prince George Hotel (15 East 27th Street, NYC). Performances begin Friday, September 24 at 7:30pm and continue through Sunday, September 26 at 3pm. Tickets are FREE and available here. Press are invited to all performances.
Twin siblings both named Antipholus and their servants, both named Dromio, were shipwrecked in a violent storm. As one pair of Antipholus and Dromio arrive in Ephesus in search of their long-lost twins, they find themselves greeted like old friends…but everyone is behaving very strangely…
“The Comedy of Errors is Boomerang’s 20th Free Shakespeare production,” says Boomerang Artistic Director Tim Errickson. “We are thrilled to bring artists and audiences together for this show.”
“The Comedy of Errors, which is at its heart about mistaken identity, reconciliation, and new possibilities, reminds us that comedy and escapism can be a way to cope with the challenges life presents us,” states Ebersold. “At this moment of reopening, it is important to not only reflect on the last 18 months but also celebrate coming together again. So, that is exactly what the ensemble and I are doing: we’re getting all dressed up, and we’re throwing a party! We’re celebrating the return of live theatre, the joy of artistic collaboration, and just how fun it is when things go terribly wrong!”
