The Impresario From Smyrna, first produced in Venice in 1761, is a laugh-out-loud comedy which follows the trials and tribulations of a group of self-absorbed, avaricious, naive and manipulative artists, agents and benefactors in the 18th Century. From the performers to the impresario, this work is a hilarious look at behind-the-scene rivalries, diva fits, casting couches and audition gossip. And yet, The Impresario From Smyrna is also about the beautiful vulnerability of the romanticized artistic personae and the mythologies that surround stage life. In brief, it s everything we love and love to hate about the theatre. Written by Carlo Goldoni and directed by Henry MacCarthy.
