About The Metromaniacs

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. She turns out to be none other than a wealthy gentleman 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). Directed by Michael Kahn. From Red Bull Theater, the company that brought you The Government Inspector.
