Parson’s Nose Theater is marking the 400th Anniversary Year of the great playwright Molière, the Father of Modern Comedy, with a salute to his poignantly funny “The Miser.”
PNT has performed five of Monsieur Poquelin’s comedies over the years with success. This February PNT will once again celebrate his talent with a published script, a new “PNT Radio Theater” podcast, and a live “PNT Readers’ Theater” presentation of Molière’s “The Mi$er!”.
PNT Artistic Director Lance Davis has translated and adapted Moliere’s classic, capturing the hellzapoppin, vaudeville spirit of Molière’s chief influence, the raucous, Italian commedia dell arte. Disgusting, old Harpagon, the stingiest man in Paris, is willing to destroy the lives of his own children, Elise and Cleante, and the innocent, young Marianne to grow his fortune. Can the lovely matchmaker, Frosine, and the wily LaFletch save them?
Join PNT for cookies, wine, conversation, and a Readers’ Theater reading of this fast-paced, classic farce.
Performances will be held on Saturdays, February 18 and 25 at 7 p.m., and Sundays, February 19 and 26 at 3 p.m.
The performance length under 90 minutes including intermission.
