At your service: 18th-century comedy
Washington's Kennedy Center begins its celebration of the arts of the United Kingdom on Tuesday with Carlo Goldoni's 18th-century comedy, "A Servant of Two Masters," co-produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company and London's Young Vic Theater Company. Goldoni's commedia dell'arte script has been adapted for this production by British playwright Lee Hall, screenwriter of "Billy Elliot."
The other two theatrical components of the British festival are an adaptation of George Eliot's "The Mill on the Floss" (May 15-June 10), produced by the Shared Experience Theatre Company, and Frank Wedekind's "Lulu" (June 12-July 8), produced by the Almeida Theatre.
Show times for "A Servant of Two Masters" in the Eisenhower Theater are 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, with matinees at 2:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, through April 29. Tickets are $20-$59. For more information, call 800-444-1324.
