WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Stephen Wadsworth makes his triumphant return to McCarter Theatre with The Figaro Plays, two thrilling new translations of the original farces that inspired the great operas: The Marriage of Figaro and The Barber of Seville. After dazzling McCarter's audiences with his Mariveaux trilogy, Wadsworth brings his genius to these two delightfully scathing social satires. Figaro, the famous barber, has his hands full with schemes, plots, and a master who chases all the wrong women. Lush, lively, and a little bit naughty, these plays are chock full of hilarious misunderstandings, passion, disguises, and sumptuous period costumes. Bring the whole family to enjoy these freshly imagined classics. (Appropriate for children 10 and up)
