have survived to this very day as Shakespeare and Moliere borrowed, for their plays, these basic human things, being in love and having adventures. Buster Keaton and Robin Williams have brought these characters to the 20th century. Often the character can say or do something that would land an ordinary mortal in jail. Contrary to what American audiences expect to find in modern plays, thinking doesn’t matter here, this is about telling a story in movement. The translators Jeffrey Hatcher and Paolo Emilio Landi were careful to keep the same number of lines and the same rhythm as the 1753 original.
