(previews start on Thursday; opens on Jan. 25) This examination and explosion of a Molire farce knits the plot about a miserly hypochondriac and his angelic daughter with less comic material - the illness and death of Ruth Maleczech, a founder of the theater company Mabou Mines. Maleczech's daughter, Clove Galilee, directs an ensemble of actors and dancers who explore how and why we use our fragile bodies to make art.
