Love can make a woman do strange things. Like lie about her past. Or give up her career for the man she loves. Or throw off her princessly raiment and disguise herself as a young man in order to infiltrate the guarded “men-only” palace compound of an exiled prince she’s admired from afar, who is secretly plotting to murder her and usurp her throne. Such is the state of things in James Magruder, Jeffrey Stock and Susan Birkenhead’s hilarious, tongue-in-cheek, anachronistic adaptation of the classic Marivaux comedy Triumph Of Love.

“Direction by Brian Swasey is brisk and gleeful, helped along by Michael P. Kramer’s beautiful set.”Broadway World

“[Brian Swasey’s] mad-cap direction is filled with spirit and sass, and he has assembled a cast who give the show their all and then some.”

“A talented cast lifts this less-than-engrossing musical adapation of Marixvaux’s to surprisingly satisfying heights.”Theater Talk’s New Theater Corps
