The Comedy of Errors
Fall Tour 2023

Shakespeare meets “The Jersey Shore” in the hilarious Globe for All Tour of The Comedy of Errors! A young man and his servant arrive in town, unaware that each of them has an identical twin already there. Things can’t possibly end well—or maybe they can, but not before the mistaken identities lead to confused lovers, shocked family members, and all-out comic chaos. Get your hair gel and spray tan ready for one of the Bard’s most outrageous comedies, filled with music and brought to life by award-winning director Em Weinstein as it visits communities across San Diego County.

All performances in the community are FREE! Register for public performances by clicking on the date you’d like to attend.

If registration is full or unavailable, guests are encouraged to show up and join the walk-in list when the doors open. Walk-in guests will be seated based on availability, and can very often be accommodated. Doors open approximately thirty minutes before showtime, or, at the time food is served when applicable. Please do not arrive before doors open—guests will not be able to access the space or join the waitlist before that time.

What is Globe for All?

Twice a year, The Old Globe tours a professional theatre production around community partners in San Diego and Tijuana for free performances, workshops, talkbacks, and catered meals. The fall tour is a three-week Shakespeare tour designed and directed for the road. The spring tour is a one-week tour of a show from our mainstage that is adapted for travel. Since the program’s inception in 2014, approximately 15,900 community members have experienced a Globe for All Tour.

Performed free of charge in non-theatrical venues such as gymnasiums, cafeterias, shelters, senior centers, refugee community centers, military installations, and correctional facilities, these productions give audiences an intimate and compelling theatrical experience that fosters a shared sense of connection between performers and audiences. The majority of attendees face barriers to accessing professional performing arts and often experience live theatre for the very first time.

If you have a community group or organization that effectively centers and serves a marginalized group in San Diego or Tijuana and you would like to discuss hosting a performance, please email AEinfo@theoldglobe.org.

Globe for All is supported by The Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation, University of San Diego, and the Ann Davies Fund for Teaching Artists. The Old Globe’s arts engagement programs are supported by Price Philanthropies, Qualcomm, U.S. Bank, and Viasat. Financial support is provided by The City of San Diego. The Theodor and Audrey Geisel Fund provides leadership support for The Old Globe’s year-round activities.
