Wrong theater, wrong play, lots of laughs

One of the nightmares that some actors at the Guthrie have is that they might make the wrong entrance in one of the playhouse’s three stages. It came true last weekend for John Catron but by comic design.

During a performance of “The Servant of Two Masters” in the McGuire Proscenium Stage, Catron, who plays Jamie in “Long Day’s Journey into Night” on the Wurtele Thrust, appeared amidst the comic miscreants in the Carlo Goldoni commedia dell’arte play.

Steve Epp, the rambunctious star of “Servant,” informed Catron that he was in the wrong theater and the wrong play. An unsteady Catron, still in character, shambled through the house and out the back, presumably to continue his sterling performance in “Long Day’s Journey.”
