Texas Tech University’s Department of Theatre and Dance presents “The Learned Ladies” by Molière, translated by Jonathan Marks. The play runs April 26 through 28 at 8:00 pm and April 29 at 2:00 pm at the Maedgen MainstageTheatre on 18th Street between Boston and Flint.
Director Jonathan Marks gives us a 21stcentury look at 17th century comedy, in his own translation of Molière’s “The Learned Ladies.” Pretentiousness, pomposity, pedantry and deception abound in a pseudo-academic setting where, the ladies, with their exaggerated intellectual airs attract some interesting frauds.
Tickets are $18 for adults and $5 for students with a valid ID. Some free tickets for Texas Tech students are available. For more information call the Maedgen Theatre box office at (806) 742-3603.
