See it if you like experimental, challenging theater. This unusual piece mixed Moliere's play w/contemporary real-life scenes about cancer treatment.
Don't see it if you want a straight-forward narrative. This piece is sprawling, w/a large cast (including dancers). Perfect for La Mama. A touching evening
See it if you like backstage shenanigans, dance, Moliere, smart stagecraft and Marylouise Burke (utterly charming). A love letter to art and family.
Don't see it if you want something mainstream and linear, you don't care about the history of the vibrant downtown NYC theatre scene.
"A large-cast elegy with laughter, loosely remixed from Molière’s play 'The Imaginary Invalid'...Ms. Maleczech, the mother of this production’s director and choreographer, Clove Galilee, was 74 when she died. Going on without Ms. Maleczech is part of what 'Imagining the Imaginary Invalid' is about...This complex show seems still to be finding its form. Already it is beautiful, though: vigorous, funny and plaintive, an act of both perseverance and remembrance."
