"I laughed so hard I fell over backward."- Voltaire

Molière is one of the theatre's greatest comic geniuses, and with Amphitryon he turns his pen away from seventeenth-century France to explore a story from ancient Greece. Jupiter, the King of the gods, is in love again — this time with the beautiful and faithful Alcmena, wife of Amphitryon, general of the Thebans. As the victorious general is on his way home from battle, Jupiter disguises himself as Amphitryon in order to win Alcmena's favors. The belnd of high comedy and slapstick antics which follows unlocks a Pandora's box of ideas about love, marriage, and power.
