10-04-2018 12:00:00 26-05-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York The Metromaniacs | Time varies It's springtime in Paris, 1738. Metromania, the poetry craze, is all the rage. Damis, a young, would-be poet with a serious case of verse-mania falls for a mysterious poetess from Breton, Meriadec de Peaudoncqville (say it). She turns out to be none other than a wealthy gentleman (yes, that's right) with a touch of the mania himself—looking to unload his sexy but dimwitted daughter—who also just happens to be cuckoo for couplets. Soon scheming servants, verbal acrobatics, and mistaken identities launch a breathless series of twists and turns in this breezy "translaptation" of a rediscovered French farce by comedic master David Ives (The Liar, Venus in Fur, All in the Timing). Red Bull Theater, the company that brought you recent acclaimed productions of The Government Inspector, Coriolanus, and The School for Scandal, is proud to present the New York Premiere of this new David Ives play. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=294316 The Duke On 42nd Street The Duke On 42nd Street
