A smart, sexy new comedy from the supremely clever David Ives (All in the Timing, Time Flies). In 18th-century Paris, poets are the rock stars of the day, and young people like Damis have gone métromanie—crazy for poetry. Damis has a serious case of verse-mania, so much so that he falls in love with his favorite poetess, not knowing that his idol is actually a middle-aged gentleman writing under a pen name! Soon we’re off and running in a breathless series of complications, plot twists, and mistaken identities that The Washington Post calls “a marvel of old and new, with punchlines that glisten with classical flair and contemporary savvy!” The Metromaniacs is a true find: one of the nation’s most exciting new plays, in its original production, directed by the legendary Michael Kahn.

Running time: One Hour, forty-five minutes. There is one intermission.
