By Moliere, adapted by Neil Bartlett
Directed by: Bruce Cohen
Le Mis·an·thrope: a person who dislikes humankind and avoids human society.
The 80’s (Me decade) when greed was good, hair was big, style was loud, and relationships were strategic - is the perfect setting for Bartlett’s adaptation of Moliere’s classic play. At Celimene’s extravagant party, Alceste and Oronte verbally spar for her affection. While Alceste despises society and vows to speak only the truth, Oronte is a wealthy respected member of society who feels he deserves to win Celimene. Vanity and silly flirtations ensue in this time-honored rollicking romp of a play.
