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

Great show! Surprise story lines, great voices, fantastic directing and good music. Brian Hargrove's book and lyrics fresh and engaging. Jon Kretzu's direction masterful. Kat Ramsburg as Jenny perfect, Leslie Law and Jayne Muirhead as Jewish and Catholic mothers wonderful and Aaron Finley in different and well done role. Must see.

The Village Theater's productions are always first rate and this was no exception. My only criticism is that the band was a little too loud, making it difficult to understand some of the words. Otherwise, the show was very entertaining and enjoyable.
The bride is Jewish. The groom is Catholic. Her mother is a force of nature, his mother is a tempest in a cocktail shaker. And when the bride’s ex-boyfriend crashes the party, the perfect wedding starts to unravel faster than you can whistle “Here Comes the Bride!” Plots are hatched, pacts are made, secrets are exposed – and the sister of the bride is left to turn a tangled mess into happily ever after. A new musical comedy for anyone with parents, It Shoulda Been You is set to shine on the Mainstage.
