On Jan. 12, Chicago's Court Theatre, the South Side's biggest Equity theater, presents a quirky revival of Moliere's courtship comedy The School for Wives. It is being staged by Laslo Marton, director-in-chief of Budapest's Vigszinhaz (the Comedy Theatre of Hungary) and artistic director of the Budapest Festival and Open-Air Theatre. Marton, who previously directed The School for Wives in the U.S. at Santa Fe Stages, is a familiar force at the Court; in 1996 he staged a stylish revival of Molnar's comic confection The Play's The Thing.

The Court's School for Wives runs through Feb. 1.
