THE MISER at the People’s Theater, March 2009
The Miser's plot, involving a rich money-lender called Harpagon, whose feisty children long to escape from his penny-pinching household and marry their respective lovers, is a comedy of manners to which the 17th-century French upper classes presumably objected.
Every show at the People’s Theater is different! The format of the show, however, is the same; come for dinner & drinks at 7pm with your friends or meet people, chat, network, discuss art etc. Each show centers around one great literary work and from there we create as much of the world of the writer and the message of the work as possible, including music, dance, theatrical performances, poetry, original films etc. all of which vary from show to show.
We strive to create a lively active forum for you to experience the world of the writer in an old world cafe setting filled with artists and patrons that encourage interaction.
It’s NOT your typical theater show!
