Production Description
Noah Averbach-Katz Christian Conn Adam Green Peter Kybart Adam LeFevre Amelia Pedlow Dina Thomas It’s springtime in Paris, 1738. Metromania, the poetry craze, is all the rage. Damis, a young, would-be poet with a serious case of verse-mania falls for a mysterious poetess from Breton, Meriadec de Peaudoncqville (say it). She turns out to be none other than a wealthy gentleman (yes, that’s right) with a touch of the mania himself—looking to unload his sexy but dimwitted daughter—who also just happens to be cuckoo for couplets. Soon scheming servants, verbal acrobatics, and mistaken identities launch a breathless series of twists and turns in this breezy “transladaptation” of a rediscovered French farce by comedic master David Ives (The Liar, Venus in Fur, All in the Timing).
