Maricopa Community Theatre is performing “The Good Doctor,” one of Neil Simon’s lesser-known comedies, this weekend. Made of a series of vignettes based on Anton Chekhov’s satirical short stories set in Russia, the play exposes hypocrisy, self-delusion, irony and human frailty, all with trademark Simon witticisms. The cast is comprised of veteran local performers and talented teens under the eye of assorted directors. Final performances are Saturday at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Leading Edge Academy.
