Wonderful sets, costumes, lighting, etc. An excellent adaptation from the French that was faithful to the intent, but not so rigid in translation that the original farcical nature would be lost. It played well to a contemporary American audience....continued
In this cheeky satire, an old hypochondriac believes in nothing and no one—except the dubious diagnoses his quack doctors keep delivering. A.C.T.‘s new production of The Imaginary Invalid offers a hysterical exposé of society’s childlike devotion to staying “well”—and a prescription for a rollicking good time.
By Molière (The Misanthrope, The School for Wives, Tartuffe, The Miser, The Bourgeois Gentleman)
Adapted by Constance Congdon
Directed by Ron Lagomarsino
