The Metromaniacs

Friday, August 19, 2022 @ 8:00pm



Shakespeare Theatre Of NJ - F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre
36 Madison Avenue, Madison, NJ, 07940


The Metromaniacs

By David Ives

Adapted from Alexis Piron's La Métromanie


Directed by Brian B. Crowe

Lisette: I'd be amazed if she were ever wived,

Locked in her room reading since she arrived.

See, she's a metromaniac. That's her curse.


Dorante: Crazy for subways?

Lisette: No, crazy for verse.

This outrageous and hilarious play from the 1700s gives Molière a run for his money. David Ives' superb translation and adaptation of Piron's original will have you grinning with delight over the nimble word play and clever wit that dominates every moment of this wonderful farce. A satirical glimpse into the world of the metromaniacs — meaning those who are maniacally devoted to the meter of rhyme and all things poetical — this frothy confection is a delicious treat for all those who love the art of language and for anyone who just loves to laugh! This comedy comes complete with a surprise twist at the end!
