THE SCHOOL FOR LIES is in Session at The Artistic Home 7/2THE SCHOOL FOR LIES is in Session at The Artistic Home 7/2
by BWW News Desk - Jun 7, 2017

The Artistic Home will follow up its highly acclaimed and Jeff recommended production of By the Bog of Cats - a contemporary Irish take on Medea - with a much cheerier updating of a classic. Their summer production for 2017 will be David Ives' comedy in verse, The School for Lies. As Ives did with The Liar, his 'translaptation' of Corneille's Le Menteur, he honors the French 17th Century practice of writing in verse, but uses contemporary language even as he maintains the Moliere play's original setting of Paris in 1666.

Humorist David Sedaris Returns to Cleveland, 10/27Humorist David Sedaris Returns to Cleveland, 10/27
by BWW News Desk - May 30, 2017

America & NPR's pre-eminent humorist, DAVID SEDARIS, is the literary world's rock star!
