Directed by Brandon Weinbrenner
Young Henriette is in love with the dashing Clitandre. But her mother wants her to marry the intellectual Trissotin. And even though her father wants her to follow her heart, her sister wants her to quit it with the boys and get back to studying! And of course, there’s a hefty dowry to factor in. What’s a girl to do!? In a production that is simultaneously a seventeenth-century French satire and a ’90s sitcom set in New Orleans, The Learned Ladies invokes laughter, love, and politics to ask the question: do you know what’s good for your own life?
