    Glittering Opprobrium in Iambic Pentameter

    Charles Isherwood

    May 1, 2011: Perhaps a cautionary note should be inserted in the program for “The School for Lies,” David Ives’s delightful period comedy at the Classic Stage Company. When you emerge from this impish comic playwright’s glittering tribute to Molière, written entirely in verse, your head will be so dizzy with syncopated rhyme that you’ll almost expect to find yourself speaking and thinking in chiming couplets.

    Truthfully, a real gem

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    The School for Lies

    Aubry D'Arminio

    May 1, 2011: Frank (Hamish Linklater) loathes social niceties. He’ll say ''please'' and ''thank you,'' but he won't tell you that your hair looks nice if it doesn't. He was, as his name plainly states, born to be frank — and to detest anyone who isn't.

    Andy Propst

    May 2, 2011: David Ives offers up a grand -- and somewhat farcical -- riff on Moliere's The Mistanthrope in The School for Lies, now playing at Classic Stage Company in an utterly delightful production under the direction of Walter Bobbie.
