The Acting Company, America's only national touring classical repertory theater, was founded in 1972 by current Producing Director Margot Harley and the late John Houseman and formed from the first graduating class of the Juilliard School's Drama Division that same year. Its mission is to reach smaller American communities, present superior productions to preserve cultural heritage, provide opportunities to young actors, commission and premier important new works by America's foremost playwrights, and make the language of the theater more accessible through a variety of outreach activities.
For its 2000-2001 season, The Acting Company presents a new musical version of Shakespeare's classic, "The Comedy of Errors," with music by Guy Woolfenden, lyrics by Trevor Nunn and direction by the acclaimed John Rando. The story of a pair of twin brothers searching for their long-lost siblings in ancient Ephesus, "The Comedy of Errors" is the 26th production of a Shakespeare play presented by The Acting Company.
"The Comedy of Errors" is the 11th Wittenberg Series event of the 2000-2001 school year. The two remaining events are the IBM Endowed Lecture in the Sciences with John Allen Paulos, mathematician on Monday, Feb. 19 and a presentation by author and journalist David K. Shipler on Monday, March 19.
