Arts: Theater: School for Wives

School for Wives. Playing at The Pearl Theater through December 24th.
By Amber Sutherland
Moliere’s comedy of errors, School for Wives, is supposed to tell the story of a young woman made pure by dint of being deprived of an education. The Pearl Theatre Company, however, production turns it into a slightly more erudite version of Neil Simon’s Fools, where characters are not innocently ignorant, but rather just plain stupid. Don’t skip Wives entirely, though: the holidays are right around the corner and it might be perfect for visiting family wanting a little “culture.”
Rating: My own miseducation.
