The Imaginary Invalid

By Moliere
Adapted and directed by Michael Goldfried

Argan is addicted to being sick; dependent on the fraudulent doctors who grow rich enabling him.
A mad-cap skewering of fraudulent power, and a celebration of personal redemption that exalts the freedom to love.

“A wonderfully funny production, with a serious view of love and power at its core.”
Roger Danforth, Artistic Director of the Drama League Director’s Project
“Hilarious, energetic and whimsical– sort of like Moliere on heavy doses of crack. The 17th-century work was transformed into an exuberant musical, filled with everything from yoga to a lesbian wedding… the creative conceptualization worked wonderfully with the talented cast and beautiful set.”
Lauren Robbins, Brown Daily Herald
