In the theatre, comedy comes in varying degrees. In romantic comedy, for example, it is sufficient to cuckold one man. For farce, however, the number should be two. And when three old men get horns put on, that's commedia dell'arte. In other words, commedia dell'arte is the wildest form of farce. And like a clown shot from a cannon, there's no stopping it or the laughter it provokes.

Such is the zany spirit of The Three Cuckolds. a ribald spoof of marital infidelity set in Venice -- Italy's own Peyton Place. The plot twists around the trysts of three couples who employ Arlecchino in their illicit intrigues. As Arlecchino becomes involved in their undercover work, he concocts an array of bizarre stories, strange disguises and far-fetched schemes. These result in a series of crazy chases worthy of a Marx Brothers film, and the uproarious climax brings new meaning to the tenet, "Love thy Neighbor."

"A hilarious, fast-moving farce! Leon Katz brings commedia dell'arte to life." -- Robert Brustein
