You Might Be a Bad Dad If...
Parents do the darnedest things. Take Harpagon, for example. The titular character in Moliere's 1668 satirical comedy The Miser, Harpagon brokers out his daughter like a thoroughbred race horse and disinherits his son after stealing his girlfriend. Stay classy, Pops! But only a French guy who died more than 300 years ago can turn the story of a tightwad jerk of a dad into a comic delight, and leave it to the talent at Stage West to bring it to a stage near you. Stage West presents The Miser this Thursday at 7:30 p.m. (with additional performances Thursdays through Sundays until November 28; no performance Thanksgiving) at Stage West in Fort Worth, 821 W. Vickery Blvd. Tickets are $26 to $30, with student and senior discounts available. Call 817-784-9378 or visit stagewest.org.
Thursdays, 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: Oct. 28. Continues through Nov. 28, 2010
