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

It is hard to put a novel of this length and complexity on the stage, but I think Book-It did a fine job. The didactic monologues were kept to a minimum, but still slowed the pace and made the play over-long, however. The actress who played Anna was absolutely perfect and every scene with her was enthralling. Costumes and stage were well done. The ice skating scene was remarkably effective.

I'm always impressed by the great productions that Book-It does. This one was no exception. The actors are really top notch and it's such an intimate theater experience. The stage is in-the-round, which is very cool with the audience all around,...continued
In the highest circles of Russian society, an unexpected encounter finds the beautiful Anna Karenina and dashing Count Vronsky desperately, madly in love. Tolstoy’s classic smolders with passion and unfulfilled desire.
