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

Shaw is one of my favorite playwrights, and Pygmalion is one of my favorite plays. We were very excited at the prospect of seeing the production, and we were not one bit disappointed. The cast was marvellous. Their accents were impeccable, and their command of Shaw's wordy language was fabulous. The one piece of staging with which I disagreed was that of the first appearance of Alfred Doolittle. I thought he was constantly speaking upstage and therefore difficult to understand. His second appearance was much better blocked. A thoroughly delightful experience of a very well-produced play!

It took sometimes to immerse myself to the play, because of the movie, My Fair Lady's images kept popped in and out in my head. However, it did not take too long before I started to enjoy Pygmalion. Enjoyed great acting by the veteran actors....continued
