Stage Review

Hijinks are on the menu with ‘The Servant of Two Masters’

Since they are performing a commedia dell’arte classic, any cast of “The Servant of Two ­Masters’’ has a license to chew the scenery.

I am happy to report that in the Yale Repertory Theatre production of Carlo Goldoni’s comedy now at the Paramount Center Mainstage, one performer after another abuses that license relent­lessly. The result is an ­uproarious, unapologetically lowbrow, compulsively enjoyable excursion into the outer realms of farce.
