Igniting the Stage

We're excited to announce our next production: local playwright Brian Vinero's original translation of Moliere's The Imaginary Invalid!

Portrait of Moliere

Though Moliere wrote it over 300 years ago, The Imaginary Invalid is a savage farce about pharmaceutical addiction and the rising cost of healthcare that is strikingly relevant today. Brian Vinero's verse translation takes aim at a system inflamed with so much corruption it almost seems incurable and the lengths that some will go to achieve "affordable" healthcare.

Coming to the new Gremlin Theatre in April 2018, our production will star Combustible Company's own Erik Hoover as Argan and feature monstrous scenic wizardry by Paul Herwig. Mark your calendars for an experience that is sure to spark conversation and laughter!

Our previous production, last fall's Bluebeard's Dollhouse, drew an audience of over 400 people to the historic James J Hill House, receiving an overwhelming response from critics and audiences alike. Bluebeard’s Dollhouse merged Charles Perrault’s murderous fairy tale Bluebeard with Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House to create a new “captivity tale” about the fight for personal emergence and acceptance.

"The text is stream-of-consciousness and the performances by all the actors are fluid, flourishing, and elongated. The use of stretched bodies, kinetic movement, and heightened vocal delivery blend to create a dreamlike effect. Bluebeard’s Dollhouse is an enthralling theatrical experience, unique and classical at the same time."John Townsend,
