Sacre bleu! Talk about overdue; it's only taken 324 years for La Comedie-Francaise to debut in Chicago, a city the French founded. Mais oui, the legendary Parisian theater troupe is 151 years older than our parvenu city. The Maison de Moliere, as the company sometimes is called, will perform Moliere's sparkling farce Le Malade Imaginaire (The Imaginary Invalid) at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, June 17-20 only. Don't pass up this opportunity to see how classical comedy really should be done, and to hear it in the original French: young lovers, a hypochondriac, a quack doctor, a zoftig wet nurse. Zoftig? It's a French word; look it up. (312) 595-5600; $75.
