The Comedy of Errors 

When: Sundays, 2 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Thu., April 6, 7:30 p.m. Continues through April 9 2017
Price: $15-$20
Antipholus and his servant Dromio are new in town, but they're immediately exceedingly popular. Antipholus is searching for his long-lost brother, but instead finds a mistress: Adriana. She knows him quite well, because they've been together for several years — but Antipholus has no memory of this, nor of their home. He's much more interested in Adriana's sister, anyway. What does he need with a mistress when he could have a wife? Now his only problem is wooing Luciana and figuring out why Dromio has become truculent and intermittently disrespectful. It's almost as if Dromio is two different people... Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors relies on mistaken identities and twins to weave its comic spell, but with the right twins and a quick cast, it can be a marvel. St. Louis Shakespeare presents The Comedy of Errors at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (March 31 to April 9) at the Ivory Theatre (7620 Michigan Avenue; www.stlshakespeare.org). There is one performance at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 6. Tickets are $15 to $20.
