The Magistrate - NT Live
by Arthur Wing Pinero
Arena Theater will screen the play on Tuesday January 23, 2013 at 7 p.m.
In a similar vein to the National Theatre's smash-hit comedies She Stoops to Conquer, London Assurance and One Man, Two Guvnors, The Magistrate is sure to have audiences around the world doubled up with laughter.
When amiable magistrate Posket (John Lithgow) marries, little does he realize she's lopped five years from her age and her son's. When her deception looks set to be revealed, it sparks a series of hilarious indignities and outrageous mishaps.
Academy Award nominee and Tony Award-winner John Lithgow (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Shrek, 3rd Rock from the Sun) takes the title role in this uproarious Victorian farce, with Olivier Award-winner Nancy Carroll (After the Dance) as his wife Agatha. The director is Olivier Award-winner Timothy Sheader (Crazy for You and Into the Woods, Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, London).
