We conclude our 2012-2013 mainstage series in the spring by returning to our roots with The Lady Becomes Him. Based on a 17th-century Italian scenario, this original farce is directed by Managing Director Toby Mulford.

“Love changes people” when two young lovers resort to magic to aid their thwarted affair and they plunge the city of Naples into a chaos of misdirection, mistaken identities, and mutually assured embarrassment.
