The Comedy of Errors will be at the Shakespeare Tavern from April 29-May 21, 2017.
If you didn’t read the play in high school, here’s the quick summary: “One of Shakespeare’s fastest, funniest and wildest plays, The Comedy of Errors is a farce that centers around two sets of twins, both separated at birth, who circulate in the same city over the course of one very crazy day. Multiple mistaken identities lead to confusion on a grand scale, while slapstick, puns and clever wordplay all add up to a singularly entertaining experience. This production of The Comedy of Errors at Atlanta’s Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse is filled to the brim with wild elements like madness, infidelity, wrongful beatings and even demonic possession.”
If you haven’t been to Shakespeare Tavern before, a tip: It’s an intimate venue, so you really can’t go wrong with any seats–I’ve tried all three price levels (Main Floor, Box Seats, Balcony), & I’ve had a good view of the production from each vantage point. The food is quite good, too–the apple crisp served during intermission is worth every calorie. Yum.
Want to go? You’ve got a few ways to save on tickets:
- While they last, you can get discount tickets to most performances of The Comedy of Errors, including the preview performances, thanks to a deal on Goldstar.
- For regular-priced tickets, you’ll get the best deal on Thursdays, plus students & educators save $5 on adult tickets (excluding Saturday nights), and seniors (age 65+) & military with ID save $3 off the adult ticket price for most performances. If you can make it, you can snag $15 general admission tickets to the preview performances on April 27 or $20 general admission tickets to the preview performance on April 28, 2017.
FYI re: parking: Unless it’s a Sunday or another exempt time, they’re enforcing the meters in front of the theatre, so make sure to pay if you use them. Or you can park in the Emory parking deck across the street. If you give them your ticket stub when you leave, parking should be $5.
Shakespeare Tavern is located at 499 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta.
