The Imaginary Invalid

When: Tuesdays-Sundays, 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays, Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Feb. 6 2011


Portland Center Stage's current mainstage production is an adaptation of Molière's The Imaginary Invalid, about an elderly hypochondriac (David Margulies, AKA the mayor from Ghostbusters!) who tries to marry off his daughter to a doctor, in hopes of snagging free medical attention. I can safely say that one thing I never expected to see at PCS was an old man analyzing the bouquet of his flatulence like a fine wine, but Constance Congdon's underwhelming adaptation leaves no fart joke unmade.
