Performance: The Matchmaker

With mistaken identities, near-misses, and a wild romp through late 19th century New York, The Matchmaker proves that sometimes money can buy happiness.

The production’s director, Doug Wager, is Artistic Director at Temple University, and Associate Dean of the Division of Theater, Film, and Media Arts. For more than twenty years he worked with Arena Stage in Washington, DC and succeeded Zelda Fichandler as the Artistic Director from 1990-1998. During that time he staged the three major Wilder plays: Our Town, The Skin of Our Teeth, and The Matchmaker.
