The Public Theater's Mobile Unit embarks on a new tour with a musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors. Conceived by director Rebecca Martínez and composer Julián Mesri, a member of The Public’s 2022-23 Emerging Writers Group, this new adaptation rigorously embraces music from all over Latin America in this tale of separation and joyous reunion. With songs in English and Spanish, this new musical adaptation brings an energetic vibe to this age-old tale of two sets of twins separated by stormy seas as they overcome a baffling case of mistaken identity—and the mayhem and hilarious confusion that follows. 

In partnership with NYC Parks Arts, Culture & Fun and Department of Transportation, as well as other key Mobile Unit partners, The Comedy of Errors will pop up both outside and indoors at public plazas, parks and community centers across the five boroughs from Tuesday, May 2 through Sunday, May 21 as part of The Public’s commitment to bringing free theater to all and deepening its engagement with communities around NYC. Following the tour to the five boroughs, a free engagement of The Comedy of Errors will run in The Public’s Shiva Theater from Thursday, May 25 through Sunday, June 11.
