Editorial Reviews

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Nothing short of brilliant...SERVANT does commedia proud! Gags, wisecracks, sly sexual references, acrobatics...this is the real thing!
Milwaukee Weekly
A circus of styles tumbling backwards, forwards and sideways...full of ancient, hooting laughs zapped together with up-your-alley anachronisms. Shower flowers on director Paolo Landi and Jeffrey Hatcher for their re-working of the eighteenth-century Italian script. Broad, bold, whacked-out and wild! A tour-de-farce! Unforgettable, undiminished delight!
