Christopher Bayes and Steven Epp co-adapted the classic, which will run through Oct. 10. Bayes also directs the Seattle production.

Breaker (Passing Strange, Shrek) stars as Sganarelle in a cast that also features Epp, Renata Friedman, Allen Gilmore, Ashley Marshall, Don Darryl Rivera and Chelsey Rives. Musicians Greg C. Powers and Robertson Witmer complete the ensemble.

Molière's A Doctor in Spite of Himself has scenic design by Narelle Sissons, costume design by Elizabeth Caitlin Ward, lighting design by Greg Sullivan and original carnival-style music and sound design by Aaron Halva.

Here's how the Intiman bills the work: "Playing doctor takes on a whole new meaning in Molière’s bawdy comedy, which reaches increasingly over-the-top levels of comic pandemonium after a marital squabble between husband and wife Sganarelle and Martine escalates. The spirited wife decides to get revenge on her scoundrel of husband by convincing the town that he’s the best doctor around and can cure any ailment, but he turns the tables on her—and everyone else—with his own definition of 'in sickness and in health.'"

For tickets to The Doctor in Spite of Himself at the Intiman, 201 Mercer Street at Seattle Center, call (206) 269-1900.
