In THE MISER (in French, L’avare), Molière’s classic comedy of manners, a wealthy tightwad seeks to arrange weddings for his daughter, his son, and himself on the cheap (obviously). A brilliant blend of satire and farce with a fast-moving plot, THE MISER is as entertaining today as it was in 1668, when it was staged for the first time in the court of the French king Louis XIV.

run-time: 100 minutes
