Friday is the opening night of City Theatre’s adaptation of “The Servant of Two Masters” directed by Christine Nicholson.

This 18th century Italian comedic masterpiece by Carlo Goldoni has been adapted by the college theater to a stage performance that mixes postmodern and vaudeville elements, according to the play’s press release. The play, set on the Jersey shore in the 1980s, follows the adventures of Truffaldino, a servant who was hired by two masters at the same time.

Stage manager Anapaul Prince praised the production’s progress.

“It’s going really well, and I hope people come to see it,” said Prince. “It’s really funny.”

The play’s comedic premise has already drawn the attention of some City College students.

“It sounds like an interesting play,” said early childhood education major Stephanie Lopez, who has never gone to a City Theatre production. “I’d go watch just to find out what happens between the two lovers, and if Truffaldino would suspect one of his masters is a woman or if he would tell the other that she is.”

“I’m aware of the play,” said Alejo Patten, 20-year-old film and theatre arts major. “Most likely, I’ll see it.”


The play runs from Sept. 22–Oct. 15 at the Art Court Theatre on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and 2 p.m. on Sundays, with an additional performance on Saturday, Oct. 14, at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for students and children over 6, $18 for general admission and $15 for seniors, SARTA members, ADA and military.
