The Rivals

The Rivals, the famously funny farce with Mrs. Malaprop, is now a hilarious new musical. It follows the travails of Lydia Languish, a young lady in possession of a large fortune, who will lose two-thirds of that fortune if she marries without her guardian, Mrs. Malaprop’s consent. But, who needs money when you’re in love? As Mrs. Malaprop would say, "It's a musical to delight the heart and tackle the funny bone”
