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

The Bathhouse Theater is a wonderful intimate little theater. I highly recommend seeing a play at this theater at your earliest possible convenience. This goes doubly so for "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead." Angela DiMarco and Alyssa Keene...continued
Audiences will laugh (and cry) their way into the New Year with Tom Stoppard’s Tony Award-winning comedy, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead. Zany humor, quicksilver wordplay, gripping tension and a heady swirl of ideas all come together in this story of two nobodies who long to star in their own story.
SPT’s revival, directed by Artistic and Education Director Shana Bestock, casts local actresses in traditionally male roles. Angela DiMarco (The 13th of Paris_) and Alyssa Keene (Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol_) take on Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, with Heather Hawkins (End Days, Mauritius) as The Player.
The cast also features Matt Aguayo, Ray Gonzalez, Julie Jamieson (Arms and the Man_), Kenna Kettrick (The Best Christmas Pageant Ever_), Patrick Lennon (Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol_), Jessa Lowe, John Murray (_Of Mice and Men, Mauritius) and Duncan Weinland (The Best Christmas Pageant Ever).
