A Servant Of Two Masters Analysis

On November 22nd , 2015 , I had attended a play “A servant of Two masters” that played downtown Pittsburgh at the O’Reilly theater, the play was directed by Ted Pappas. He had put together a creative and intriguing play, having actors stay spontaneous and interact with the audience, therefore no parts would be found boring nor dry. All the actors had held up their end of their roles quite well, by fully disguising themselves as that character they were suppose to be during the entire play.

During the play the main focus was on Truffoldo the servant who get the job to be a servant of another master who ironically was Florindo. Throughout the climax of the play, Truffoldo creates a large amount of chaos by mixing up wrong letters to go to which master and which master

They must use hand movements and their tone of voice to impress the audience, along with keeping the audience on board with what goes on. I felt the cast of these plays were very comfortable with the stage. They did an amazing job of keeping me awake and “on track” with what was going on.…

    Also, they did a remarkable job flowing every scene or point. I did not notice any breaks, where there was nothing going on. But, mostly I enjoyed the play because I was able to relate to a lot of the themes and was able to put myself in some of the characters shoes.

    All the characters were flawed which led to a dynamic performance by the actors. This was essential in keeping the audience's attention since there were not many actors or characters.

Without her natural delivery of her lines, the laughable parts of the play would fall short and it would seem like the play is dragging on.…
