Storyline

Aegeon of Syracuse has come to Ephesus to seek his son, who went in search of his missing twin and mother months ago. Too bad that Ephesus has just declared war on Syracuse, and will instantly put to death any Syracusean found within their borders unless a ransom's paid. Meanwhile, the son, Antipholus, and his servant, Dromio (also an identical twin), keep running into strangers who seem to know them...

I thought I'd only imagined it!

I recall having seen this MANY years ago...no one else seems to have seen this in my circle of friends and family. I had nearly convinced myself that this wonderfully bizarre program had never been. At a certain point in time, my friends actually refused to believe that LIVE from LINCOLN CENTER would even produce something that sounded so outlandish. The fact that it has hung in my memory for over 20 years is testament to the power of its comedy. That and the fact I was an impressionable young girl could have something to do with it. I, too, would dearly love a copy of this performance. I have contacted the official site of the Flying Karamazov Brothers and, hopefully, I will have some answer as to video/DVD availability
