Theatre Three says
Paris, 1643. Dorante is a charming young man newly arrived in the capital, and he has but a single flaw: He cannot tell the truth. In quick succession he meets Cliton, a manservant who cannot tell a lie, and falls in love with Clarice, a charming young woman whom he unfortunately mistakes for her friend Lucrece. What our hero regrettably does not know is that Clarice is secretly engaged to his best friend Alcippe. Nor is he aware that his father is trying to get him married to Clarice, whom he thinks is Lucrece, who actually is in love with him. From all these misunderstandings and a series of breathtakingly intricate lies springs one of the Western world's greatest comedies, a sparkling urban romance as fresh as the day Pierre Corneille wrote it, brilliantly adapted for today by All in the Timing's David Ives.

Directed by B.J. Cleveland, the cast includes Jenna Anderson as Clarice, Bradley Campbell as Geronte, Dustin Curry as Alcippe, Suzanna Fox as Isabelle/Sabine, David Goodwin as Philiste, Michael Kreitzinger as Cliton, Liz Millea as Lucrece, and Zak Reynolds as Doronte.

Previews begin May 7 with the official opening night on May 11 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets: or 214-871-3300.
