Based on the 18th century comedy by Pierre Marivaux and the book by James Magruder, the story follows the trials and tribulations of a young princess as she attempts to win the love of an exiled prince, but in the process ensnares two other suitors. “Triumph of Love” is a perfect combination of delightful music and lyrics and a charming, often hilarious book.
