Is He Dead?

8 p.m., Saturday April 26
"Is He Dead" is a fast-paced comic confection originated by the incomparable American humorist Mark Twain and adapted for modern audiences by David Ives.  Set in 1846 France, the story centers on Jean-Francois Millet, a young painter of genius, who is in love with a young lady but in debt to a villainous art dealer, Bastien Andre.  Andre forecloses on Millet, threatening debtor's prison unless he can marry Millet's lady.  After a failed art sale, Millet's buddies realize that only dead painters seem to achieve fame and fortune. They hatch a plan for Millet to fake his death and prosper, all the while passing himself off as his twin sister, the Widow Tillou. Once he's a rich "widow," Millet  must find a way to get out of a dress, return to public life, and marry his love.
