Average rating score for this production


“The National, in taking on an old Italian play, has not only improved Goldoni but also struck gold.”

“Corden, with a face like an enormous potato and a physical dexterity that is astonishing in one so corpulent, brings a winningly warm and harassed humanity to the role.”


“A deliriously daft and diabolically joke stuffed entertainment by Richard Bean.”
