The FSU/Asolo Conservatory Presents The Learned Ladies

Arts & Culture

The FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training prepares to open the next show in its 2021-22 season, Molière’s The Learned Ladies. Directed by Benny Sato Ambush, the show runs Feb. 23 – March 13, with a pay-what-you-can preview on Feb. 22. Full of wildly comic characters, The Learned Ladies is Molière’s most popular play. Clitandre seeks the hand of Henriette, a match heartily approved of by her father, Chrysale. However, his wife, Philaminte, has other plans for her younger daughter – namely marriage to a foppish wit who panders to Philaminte’s middle class pretensions.

Ambush is the artistic director of the Venice Theatre in Venice, Fla., America’s second largest community theatre. He previously artistically helmed two professional theatres (Oakland Ensemble Theatre and Richmond’s TheatreVirginia), as well as the academically based Rites & Reason Theatre Company at Brown University. For nine years, he was the senior distinguished producing director in residence at Emerson College’s Department of Performing Arts. He has directed at numerous professional regional theatres and academic theatre training programs throughout the United States and has taught acting and directing for MFA, BFA and BA programs nationally. The Learned Ladies plays Feb. 22 – March 13 in the Cook Theatre at the FSU Center for the Performing Arts.
