The Imaginary Invalid is Moliere's classic comedy, adapted by Oded Gross and Tracy Young into a psychedelic mix of big hair, gogo boots, and colorful fashion.

The plot centers around Argan, a hypochondriac obsessed with managing his imagined ailments. Life swirls around his wheelchair. He has two daughters (one beautiful and lovesick, the other humpbacked and hopeful), an unfaithful and scheming wife, a sassy but grounded housekeeper, and a "Man vs. Wild" brother who scoffs at physical weakness as much as Argan coddles it.

Beyond them is a parade of characters who dance, sprawl, sing and twirl their way through Argan's lavish home. The play is peppered with seven musical numbers composed by Paul James Prendergast, who co-wrote lyrics with Gross and Young. The music echoes the "Wall of Sound" style of early '60s music producer Phil Spector.

Like a fireworks show, this script pops rapidly until the finale, delivering a poignant carpe diem message.
