Hot ticket alert: The DalTheatre production of The Comedy of Errors is a play you don’t want to miss. This is Shakespeare that will tickle your funny bone. It’s full-out, madcap fun somehow reminiscent of Saturday morning cartoons---and I mean that as high praise. The central characters are two sets of twins separated at birth, and the actors who play them are remarkable in their likeness and in their talent for physical comedy. The perfectly choreographed pratfalls had the audience roaring with laughter, as did the delightfully over-the-top fart war. (There’s a line you don’t see in reviews every day!) The stage is peopled with memorable characters, from the disgustingly porcine kitchen wench to the fantastically frightening Dr. Pinch. The costumes are a riot of whimsical style and opulent fabric that simply pop against the solidity of the set. Run---don’t walk---to get your tickets. –Kate Watson
