CTC stages ‘Comedy of Errors’ at circus

In Andrew Borba’s eyes, William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors is true entertainment.

“What’s funny and what’s flip, those are two different things,” said Borba, director of Comedy and Chautauqua Theater Company associate artistic director. “I’m very much interested in what’s really funny, and I think that comes from true, human behavior. There isn’t a human being who can’t associate or wonder who they are, or have been in a situation where the world started acting against them and they had no idea why. It’s completely universal.”

The occasion is Chautauqua Theater Company’s production of The Comedy of Errors, which will debut this Friday at 8 p.m. at Bratton Theater. The show will be directed by Andrew Borba and staged on a set designed by Tom Buderwitz.
