The Rivals

1/7/2020 through 2/2/2020 | Seattle Center

Theatre Queen Anne/Seattle Center

Romance novels have given young (and wealthy!) Lydia Languish some ridiculous notions, and she insists on marrying a poor man for the sake of true love. Hoping to woo the young woman, Captain Jack Absolute pretends to be a poor naval officer. Aiding and thwarting Jack’s pursuit are a collection of comic characters including his crusty and cranky father, Sir Anthony, Lydia’s meddling and misspoken aunt, Mrs. Malaprop, and a pair of adversaries: the jovial Bob Acres and the salty Sir Lucius O’Trigger. Will romance spark in the midst of hilarious circumstances and mistaken identities?
