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

What is Million Dollar Quartet like?
While the show doles out plenty of rock ‘n’ roll history during its 90-minute running time, the information is served alongside exuberant rock hits by each of the four artists, ensuring that Million Dollar Quartet is much more musical spectacle than college course. The production is light on plot, breezing through career highlights to get to what matters most: the music, which is performed with reckless abandon live onstage by the cast. Audiences with an affinity for classic rockabilly will be hard-pressed not to be drawn in by the stars, who embody their respective characters down to the very last pelvic gyration or piano pounding.
*Is Million Dollar Quartet good for kids? *
This show is a kid-friendly celebration of music that the entire family can enjoy. While definitely not a show made especially for children—the production aims for the hearts of those who grew up twisting and shouting—the production’s up tempo numbers come in rapid succession and the plot is easy to follow. There is some sexual innuendo, smoking and drinking, but the show is almost as clean as The Ed Sullivan Show. This one is an excellent primer for future music junkies.
