The Liar 

When: April 23-May 10 2015
Price: $35

The French comedy The Liar began life in 1643, the same year Louis XIV was crowned king, as a production of Pierre Corneille. Playwright David Ives adapted it in recent years to much acclaim, using rhyming couplets with abandon, and the local performance opens at 7:30 tonight at the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater (3955 Regent Circle, theatreworkscs.org). Of the two-act play performed by TheatreWorks, Ives told NPR in 2010 that he "was handed a gorgeous, intricate plot with extraordinary comic turns. And so, all I had to do, really, in taking this is turn it up to 11." Tickets are $35. Check out our review of the play in next week's issue. — Bryce Crawford
