William Shakespeare's "The Comedy of Errors" is the story of mistaken identities, as a city is thrown into chaos when two sets of twins unintentionally cause confusion. The Colorado Shakespeare Festival in Boulder adds some additional twists this summer. The traditionally male leads are played by women and this production is set in 1930s Paris.

"The Comedy of Errors" runs through Aug. 7 at the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre on the University of Colorado Boulder campus.
