Subject: Review of Comedy of Errors
Order Archly Bows to Sweet Confusion
August 25, 2004
By EDWARD ROTHSTEIN
LENOX, Mass., Aug. 24 -Each "Comedy of Errors" has its own Ephesus. And
here in Lenox, at the Founders' Theater, which sits on 63 acres
belonging to Shakespeare and Company, Shakespeare's legendary locale has
become a tropical paradise, an amusement park and a place for
resurrected comic routines. Cape Verdian music slinks and bustles;
periscopes and blue accordion-snakes emerge from the floor; a rotating
yellow tea cup carries mismatched lovers to their assignations.
