THE TRIUMPH OF LOVE
by Marivaux
translated by James Magruder
directed by Jesse Berger

Love is a force to be reckoned with in Marivaux's classic comedy, as Princess Léonide of Sparta employs wits and wiles-and britches too-when she attempts a tour de force triple-seduction of not only her young love, but also his two stick-in-the-mud guardians. This delightful tale of multiple misunderstandings has "a contemporary edge" (New York Times) and "delicious soufflé lightness" (New York Post) in Jim Magruder's translation. Marivaux's 18th-century masterpiece asks: Can the rational really reign...when the heart refuses to follow?
