La Bête: Recently Revived Comedy Set in 17th-Century France
$12.50 - $20*
$25 - $40
Written in 1991, playwright David Hirson's La Bête (which translates as "the beast") has enjoyed runs on Broadway and in London's West End, and the period comedy, set in 17th-century France, was revived in 2010 for another Broadway run. The show centers on a power struggle between the stuffy Elomire and the foppish Valere in the royal court-sponsored theater troupe. As head of the troupe, Elomire objects to patron Prince Conti's desire to see Valere -- a street performer -- join the fold. The modern comedy is written in iambic pentameter and inspired by real-life 17th-century French playwright and actor, Molière.
