with "The Liar" by David Ives, author of the hit plays "Venus in Fur" and "All in the Timing." Ives deftly updates a classic comedy of manners, Pierre Corneille's "The Liar," with his trademark intelligence, cheek, and wit. In "The Liar," Dorante has a gift for stretching the truth. In fact, he rips it apart at the seams. But when the first-rate fabulist falls in love with Clarice—or is she Lucrece?—he begins to weave an increasingly intricate web of lies that even he can't keep up with. Add to the mix a loyal servant, a meddling father, and a jealous best friend, and the scene is set for a misadventure of romance that's short on truth but long on laughter. Tuesdays at 7 p.m., the performance schedule continues with Wednesday at 2 and 8 p.m., Thursday and Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 3 and 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. Special series feature Taste of Tuesday, Previews, LGBT Night OUT, Opening Night, Sunday Symposium, Open Captions, Thursday TalkBack, Together at the Table Family Dinner, Playhouse Young Professionals, and Backstage Pass.
