The Artful Widow
By Carlo Goldoni
Directed by John Szostek
March 28-April 13, 2003
A comic tale of love, jealousy, mistaken identities, and deception.
The Widow, Rosaura, is searching for a husband. With four suitors of different nationalities, she has no lack of choices. And with the aid of the clever, but always unpredictable, servant Arlecchino (the origin of the more familiar Harlequin), nothing but hilarity and chaos could ensue.
Here's what our critics say:
"A 250 yr old version of The Bachelorette, albeit with far greater intelligence and far bigger swords."
