Can love triumph over greed? Can the children outwit their selfish father? Will everyone get what they deserve - and can their antics remain relevant over three hundred years after Moliere's The Miser was written? Alan Blumenfeld, a member of Theatricum's repertory company for over 25 years, stars as Harpagon, the churlish skinflint who wants to marry off his children for financial gain. His fanatical hoarding and penny pinching ways set his entire family scheming to steal his fortune.
The Theatricum production is set during the French Renaissance and features original songs composed by Ellen Geer with lyrics by Ellen Geer and Peter Alsop.
