When newlyweds, old friends, actors, a bitter older sister, an Italian cook, and a cross-dressed Albanian carpenter celebrate a wedding together in an Umbrian farmhouse, everything goes delightfully awry. Co-written by leading American playwright Charles Mee and renowned Renaissance scholar Stephen Greenblatt, Cardenio is a romantic romp that has audiences roaring with laughter. A thoroughly modern comedy about love, marriage, family, and friendship filled with singing, dancing, and countless winks at the Bard, this hilarious farce is the perfect way to welcome in spring. It’s the dessert of the A.R.T.’s 2007-08 season!
Produced in association with the The Public Theater, New York.
