Learned Ladies starts this week!

The Schwartz Center is proud to present Those Learned Ladies, a work by Molière, from April 27 – 30.

This classic French comedy pokes fun at preciosity and pretension, mocking pedantry and skewering those who consider themselves to be “learned.” The setting of the play is the literary salon of Philaminte, a formidable woman and self-described intellectual. Her salon is populated by the various performers, artists and scholars of her extended family.

Drawing inspiration from the performance salons of the 1960s, this production will combine improvisation with spoken word art, including spontaneous musical and poetic happenings.

During performances, 20 audience members will be able to sit on the stage near the performance, in special limited on-stage seating (which will include free popcorn).

Evening performances of Those Learned Ladies will be at 7:30 p.m. April 27 – 30. One matinee will be offered at 2 p.m. April 30. For tickets and information, visit the box office in the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts, 430 College Ave., between 12:30-4 p.m. weekdays; call 607-254-ARTS; or purchase tickets online at http://www.schwartztickets.com. Tickets for Those Learned Ladies are $10 (students/seniors) and $12 (general). If interested in on-stage seating, please mention your preference when ordering tickets.
