Moliere's 1673 classic is brought to life by ACT I, with Melissa Bedinger Hade at the directorial helm. This outrageous comedy about medicine and its practitioners revolves around the hypochondriacal Argan, for whom laxatives, enemas, suppositories, bloodlettings and second and third opinions constitute business as usual. Putting up with him are his wily servant Toinette, plus his daughter Angelique, who’s in love with the impoverished Cleante, even as her father intends her to marry a medical dunce who can dote on daddy-in-law till his dying day — should that ever actually come. The show’s generally experienced cast features Danny Proctor, Lynda Cameron-Bayer, Amanda Bailey, Robert Grider and Matthew Baxter, with additional support from Linda Speir, Daniel Sadler, Frank Preston and others. Musical interludes are promised.
