 Shakespeare is known for a lot of things: writing in iambic pentameter, leaving a stage strewn with dead bodies, virtually creating the romantic screwball comedy. Oh, yes, and he also loved to up the ante in the stories he happily plagiarized. In his  Comedy of Errors , for example, he has not just one set of identical twins misplaced and wandering around the Greek city of Ephesus but two sets: masters and servants. Add to this a jealous wife, a mother-turned-nun, fears of demonic possession, and a whole lotta slapstick humor. The American Shakespeare Center, which is known among other things for its replica of Shakespeare’s indoor theatre at its home base in Staunton, are sending their seasoned acting troupe to Lynchburg to perform at the Academy Center of the Arts’s Joy & Lynch Christian Warehouse Theatre (519 Commerce St.) on Friday, October 26. The show starts at 7:30 and tickets run from $17 to $38. For more info, click  here  or call (434) 846-8499.
