THEATER | "The Philanderer" 

Two women want to marry the same man, who really isn't interested in getting married at all but would rather spout jokes and paradoxes: this must be a Bernard Shaw play. "The Philanderer" is one of his earliest, written in 1893 and displaying many of the political concerns and character types that preoccupied him throughout his career. As one of Shaw's "Plays Unpleasant," along with "Widower's Houses" and "Mrs. Warren's Profession," "The Philanderer" was so controversial that it wasn't performed until 1902. When Classics Theater of Rochester presents "The Philanderer" at MuCCC it will be using Shaw's rarely performed original ending. We won't spoil it, but we can tell you that it is definitely ... Shavian.

Shaw's "The Philanderer," presented by Classics Theater of Rochester will be performed Thursday, September 4, through Sunday, September 7, at MuCCC, 137 Atlantic Avenue. 8 p.m. on September 4, 5, and 6; 2 p.m. on September 7. $12-$15.
