Oliver Goldsmith's classic 1773 comedy, She Stoops to Conquer, is given another look Sept. 17-Oct. 24 at Off Broadway's Pearl Theatre Company. Celeste Ciulla plays Kate Hardcastle, who in the play masquerades as a bar maid in order to capture the affections of Christopher Moore's Marlow, who gets along famously with the lower classes but fumbles in his interactions with high-born ladies.
Also in the cast are John Camera, Sally Kemp, Edward Seamon, Jay Stratton, Constance Neville, Scott Whitehurst, Dominic Cuskern, John Livingstone Rolle, Stewart Carrico and Mary Molloy.
The Pearl operates out of Theatre 80, at 80 St. Mark's Place in the East Village. Call (212) 598-9802.
