“It is no small thing to see a face come more alive under the cover of a mask. It forces a confrontation with the self. Fools in Progress perform with admirable mastery, keeping a tradition alive that is self-evidently worth preserving.” Lisa Thatcher The Servant of Two Masters – What does theatre preserve and what does it shake off? (Theatre Review)

“… Ben-Jamin Newham’s Truffaldino is a stand out, and worth the price of the ticket alone. Clearly a master of his style, it’s a joy to behold the endless energy and stylistic rhythms that go into this performance. Likewise, the period accuracy of Bianca Bonino is revelatory and engagingly funny. Both are the mask coaches for the cast, and they have done their job well. ” by Lisa Thatcher, The Servant of Two Masters – What does theatre preserve and what does it shake off? (Theatre Review)

“The standout actor in the play for us was Bianca Bonino, who played the role of Pantalone, an older Italian man so well, that it never drew from the story that she was, in fact, a woman! ” by Danushi, Weekend Notes – Carlo Goldoni’s The Servant of Two Masters at King Street Theatre

"The standout performance is by Ben-Jamin Newham who gives an exciting, entrancing performance as Truffaldino, garbed in traditional, multi-coloured costume and soft red hat. Like Puck he is mischievous, meddling, amusing character. The famous set-piece of the play, the scene in which the frantic, starving Truffaldino attempts to serve a banquet to the entourages of both his masters without either group becoming aware of the other, whilst desperately trying to satisfy his own hunger at the same time, is performed magnificently. Truffaldino gets hopelessly entangled in the web of lies he weaves but fortunately all ends happily."

"All in all, The Servant of Two Masters is a well-executed, joyful experience in remembering and forgetting what theatre used to be. However, just as what we choose to remember is as important as what we choose to forget, those choices form the platform for the actions in the present and the future we project. A good look at this production will help us see those choices at broader and more accessible perspective than we know."

"The first couple features Silvio, elegantly and stiffly played by David D’Silva, and Calice, Pantelone’s daughter, was virtuously played by Ali Aitken. In one aspect, Clarice is strong and defiant – her love for Silvio." ALI AITKEN as Claricde and DAVID D' SILVA as Silvio Lombardi

"The second pair of lovers features Florindo Aretusi, terrifically played by darkly handsome Daniel D’Amico, and Beatrice Rasponi, for most of the play in sumptuous disguise as her brother Federigo, was given a feisty performance by Marcella Franco. "

“Smeraldina, Clarice’s confidant and maid, (the Columbine figure if one is referring to Commedia), was warmly played by Gianna Di Genua. Her character doesn’t put up with any nonsense, and comments on the going ons with some quite pro-feminist speeches. ” by Lynne Lancaster, Sydney Arts Guide, GOLDONI’S ‘SERVANT’ GIVES COMIC BOOST TO KING STREET THEATRE

"Pantalone, Clarice’s father,  was joyously played by Bianca Bonino. His friend, the Falstaff like, rotund Doctor Lombardi, was delightfully played by Mark Power. Pasqualino Arcuri revelled in playing innkeeper Brighella, he of the enormously bushy eyebrows and moustache."
