"…highly accessible new translation…takes bold chances without ever losing sight of Molière's original intent…A MISER in which more is always more—what could be more fitting for a play about greed?" —Sun (Baltimore). "The saucy serving of THE MISER…is for those who like their French fare spicy and au courant. The veteran translator James Magruder provides a burlesque kick to Molière's 336-year-old farce, and the result is a delectable evening of shameless off-color gags and timeless double-entendres." —Washington Post. "Magruder has done a wonderful job of tweaking and freshening the 17th-century French farce. It is downright beautiful to behold and marvelous to hear…this [play] is laugh-out-loud funny, and the topical references are fresh, not forced." —Baltimore Guide. "…[THE MISER] is generous in its amorous plotting and slapstick-level humor. It's so fast and silly that no dust could possibly settle on Molière's classic play. Much of that lively spirit is due to a new translation and adaptation by James Magruder…though still presented as a period piece, this translation isn't afraid to speak in today's language…you'll laugh at every scheme and revelation along the way." —Lifetimes.com.
