Classic Comedy The Beaux' Stratagem Updated by Thornton Wilder & Ken Ludwig
COMP - $10*
Adapted by Pulitzer winner Thornton Wilder (Our Town) and Tony winner Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor), George Farquhar's classic Restoration comedy The Beaux' Stratagem is as lively today as when it premiered in 1707. The play centers on Archer and Aimwell, young gentlemen who, having wasted their fortunes living it up, hatch a moneymaking scheme. The unscrupulous pair plans to travel from town to town, posing as master and servant in order to seduce wealthy heiresses and steal their riches. Unfortunately, Aimwell falls in love, and the duo becomes ensnared in a hilarious web of complications. Playwright Ludwig is no stranger to comedy; The New York Times called his Broadway debut "one of the two great farces by a living writer."
