Wherefore Art Thou, Dromio? 

Many of Shakespeare's plays walk a thin line between comedy and tragedy. Most times the distinction boils down to a central question: Will the ruse (or confusion, or deception) be uncovered before someone gets killed? There is confusion aplenty in the decidedly non-tragic The Comedy of Errors, which is being performed by St. Louis Shakespeare at the Orthwein Theatre on the campus of Mary Institute and Saint Louis Country Day School (101 North Warson Road, Ladue). The play concerns two sets of identical (and identically named) twins, Antipholus and Dromio, who seek reunion with their long-lost brothers. Comedy mixes many of the Bard's favorite themes — estranged siblings, mistaken identity, shipwrecks — with plenty of bawdy puns and broad humor. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday (March 7 through 16). Tickets are $15 to $22. For more information call 314-361-5664 or visit
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: March 7. Continues through March 16, 2008
