A MAID FOR TWO MAESTROS
A New Comedy in Verse Inspired by Carlo Goldoni’s: “The Servant of Two Master’s”
About the Book
A Maid for Two Maestros commences in the Chicago penthouse of Judge Pantalone Englandetti, where festivity is underway to applaud the betrothal of his lovely daughter Clarice to attorney Silvio Lombardi, the handsome son of Dr. Maria Lombardi. As the wedding agreement is being celebrated with song, dance and melodic merriment high above Lake Michigan, the outlandish and amusing Truffaldina enters to announce the arrival of her virtuoso mentor: the great maestro Federico Rasponi of Boston. Inspired by Carlo Goldoni’s classic: The Servant of Two Masters, this contemporary version by John Ross, Jr., is steeped in clever comedic verse, stage magic and tap-dancing midst fine Italian cuisine. A Maid for Two Maestros is an enchanting new play steeped in masked celebration of Commedia dell’arte. An amusing delight for contemporary audiences, both old and young.
