“How many fond fools serve mad jealousy!”
Travel bans, families unable to visit, and a world gone topsy turvy. Sound familiar? Welcome to Ephesus! (Which feels strangely like Nashville in the 1970s.) Shakespeare’s madcap farce tells the story of two sets of twins in the same place at the wrong (right?) time. Bold, flashy, and rhinestone-studded, this is the Bard at his most riotously comic.
