In the heart of Paris, the beautiful, young widow Célimène hosts a posh salon and entertains her guests with satiric impressions of society’s dilettantes. Her many suitors specialize in flamboyant fashion, obsequious flattery, and atrocious poetry. When Frank, a British traveler, arrives dressed in boring black and ready to call out hypocrisy with sharp humor and acidic cynicism, Célimène meets her match. This riotous farce is a high tempo roller-coaster glittering with witty wordplay and giddy love affairs that will set your heart aflutter.
