The Coffee Shop (La Bottega del Caffe) / Edition 1by Carlo Goldoni
Pub. Date: 01/28/1995
Publisher: Smith & Kraus, Inc.
Anyone for Venice? Yes, lots of people actually: pilgrims, con artists, gamblers, phonies, policemen, waiters, businessmen - all caught up in the Carnival, dropping in at the coffee shop for a cuppa, for java was big in 1750. You'd think you were at a Starbucks! Goldoni's single set for this comedy from his golden middle period is a quiet piazzetta he knew well where a little coffee shop, a gambling den, a barber shop, and an inn keep the action hopping.
