Audible Editor Reviews

Two of Molière's most popular plays see a modern performance from a talented cast in this live recording from L.A. Theatre Works. The School For Husbands is a farce centering around the suitors of two sisters, both of whom employ very different methods to secure their affection, while The Imaginary Cuckold is a relationship comedy about mistaken identity. Both plays benefit from a spirited and humorous delivery from Tony award-winning actor Brian Bedford and a supporting cast including Emily Bergl, Dakin Matthews, and Juliet Mills. Listeners will find these two works by Molière both wise and hilarious.
