The Misanthrope, translated into English verse by Tim Mooney and adapted from the play by Moliere runs in rotating repertory from January 28, 2011 – March 5, 2011
Below is the video that plays in the lobby of the Hilberry Theatre before each performance of The Misanthrope. It features an introduction from Peter Prouty and interviews with Andrew Papa, Vanessa Sawson and Michael Wilkki.
The misanthrope is a man who seems passionate in his comic detestation of humankind – its foibles and hypocrisy. Yet the woman he desperately loves stokes his flames of ire and desire as she courts him while simultaneously promising her love to many other suitors. Life unravels beautifully in this comic masterpiece about men, women, passions and protestations.
Andrew Papa (Alceste), Dave Toomey (Philinte), Alan Ball (Oronte), Vanessa Sawson (Celimene), Samantha Rosentrater (Eliante), Lorelei Sturm (Arsinoe), Jordan Whalen (Acaste), Edmund Alyn Jones (Clitandre), Jason Cabral (Basque), and Christopher Ellis (Du Bois).
