The Learned Ladies


Written By: Moliere
Company: American Conservatory Theater (ACT)

“Seyd stages Ladies as if it belonged to all time, not to any specific century. Seyd keeps the comedy percolating with deft sight gags. It’s a blissful romp through the folly of the wise.”

Robert Hurwitt
San Francisco Examiner

“Seyd brings a playful inventiveness to the refreshingly modern comedy with pantomime, slapstick and a sure sense of rhythm and comic timing.”

Matthew Surrence
Oakland Tribune

“Richard Seyd’s staging is smart, funny and hip. It just plain works.”

Dennis Harvey
