Contemporary slang meets 17th-century farce in The School for Lies. Adapted from Molière's The Misanthrope, playwright David Ives (Venus in Fur, All in the Timing) transforms Molière's classic into a modern satire told entirely through verse. The result is a delightfully incongruous comedy of manners that lets you peer inside the Parisian salon of Celimene, a young widow with a sharp tongue and plenty of suitors. Teresa Thuman and Ken Michels co-direct this Center Theatre production, in which a saucy siren finally meets her misanthropic match. Learn More

Standing ovation well deserved. Very well directed. The acting superb. Great acting team, but standouts -- Ryan McCabe as Mary Sunshine, Taryn Darr as Roxie Hart, Desiree Davar as Velma, Richard Gray as Amos, Timothy McCuen Piggee and Billy Flynn and Shaunyce Omar and Matron Mama Morton. The Village has done it again. Putting a crisp and fresh look on a tried and true story of Chicago.

Wow! What an energetic and satisfying show. If you can no longer see Gwen Verdon and Chita Rivera or Bebe Neuwirth and Ann Reinking, this production is the next best thing. Village Theatre keeps getting better and the production values higher....continued
