By Ben Jonson
Directed by Jesse Berger
Meet Volpone, the rich old Magnifico, whose ingenious schemes and farcical scams dupe his wealthy friends into showering him with gold. This Jacobean juggler robs the rich to feed the richer. One of the greatest comedies ever written for the stage, Jonson’s merciless satire of greed delightfully skewers the hypocrisies of humanity with irreverent comic relish. A feast of extraordinary language and outrageous characters await you in this timeless and timely classic from the pen of Shakespeare’s greatest peer.
VOLPONE OR THE FOX ran for a limited engagement from November 25 - December 23, 2012 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.

"A host of accomplished actors—They're all fantastic."
"Deliciously silly! It is almost rare to find a show this well acted and presented as it is to find a production of a Johnson play amid the busy Holiday season, "Volpone" is worth your time."
