Comedy

In aristocratic Paris, poets are the rock stars of the day, and young people have gone métromanie (“crazy for poetry”). And Damis has developed a particularly severe case – he’s fallen in love with the work of a mysterious poetess, not knowing that his idol is actually a middle-aged gentleman writing under a pen name. Plot twists, complications, and mistaken identities – all in rhymed verse – tumble to a happy ending in this new telling of a 1738 French farce. “…the language is golden…almost criminally enjoyable…”  –Washington Post
