Move over, Kim Kardashian — poets are the sought-after celebrities in David Ives’ uproarious comedy The Metromaniacs. Adapted from an 18th-century French farce by Alexis Piron, the play follows an aspiring poet who becomes infatuated with the works of an enigmatic female writer. The twist? The lady is, in fact, a middle-aged man pulling a trick on the poetry establishment. A Middlebury Actors Workshop production transports theatergoers to a place that director Melissa Lourie calls “a purer world, where characters are drunk on language and high-comic passion.”
