Synopsis: "The farce follows the charming Dorante who cannot tell the truth and the manservant Clinton who cannot tell a lie."

The creative team has also been announced and features original music by Adam Wernick, scenic design by Alexander Dodge, costume design by Murell Horton, lighting design by Mary Louise Geiger, and sound design by Matt Stine.

John Doyle's debut season as Artistic Director will conclude with his helming of a revival of Pacific Overtures, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by John Weidman, starring George Takei.
