In short, Argan is so obsessed by his imaginary ailments, he can no longer control his mess of a household or the mercenary medics he employs. When the doctors try to rip him off, Argan's dearest family strives to cure the real disease from which he suffers. Oh, and there's also a classic love story somewhere in this! And people playing dead! Um... and there's a live band and production numbers too! It's gonna be tons of twists and turns, a lot of confusion, and even more laughter... LMFAO!
See you at Mons. Argan's residence - gotta jet to clean another toilet now!!!
