Editorial Reviews

Variety
With results ranging from clever to hilarious, translator David Chambers blends a pure line-for-line translation with the liberally political Henry Fielding version, resulting in a script both audaciously irreverent and intellectually true to Molière's 325-year-old original.
Orange County Register
The new, loony—tune mad MISER...spins the French comedy classic through a blackly funny, fun-house mirror.
