Malpractice Makes Perfect, with book, music and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, is based on the Moliere's classic comedy of manners, The Doctor in Spite of Himself. A musical comedy whose classic plot devices lead to hilarious ends, Harnick's adaptation tells the story of a woodcutter manipulated by his spiteful wife to impersonate a brilliant doctor. Called to an emergency case-- a lovely young woman who feigns sickness to avoid her impending marriage-- the "doctor" prescribes a perfect remedy for an uproarious situation. Mix in a cast of eccentrics, and the comic antics build to a climactic resolution.
The York Theatre Company's acclaimed Musicals in Mufti series of musical theatre gems, in a simply-staged, book-in-hand concert format, has presented over 90 shows from the past in its twenty-ninth year history. Mufti means: "in street clothes, without the trappings associated with a full production."
