In the Lansburgh Theatre
All the world’s a stage in this comedy that summons the spirit of Shakespeare.
When Jack Rover, a wandering actor, decides to pose as a gentleman, he’s forced
to rely on his wits—and his deep love of the Bard—to find love and a new home.
John O’Keeffe’s play from 1791 is a treasure of the Georgian theatre—it’s funnier
than Goldsmith, more ingeniously plotted than Sheridan and warmer of heart
than both combined.
