Translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur
Directed Joseph Hanreddy
The Misanthrope follows the hilariously thorny love life of the irascible Alceste and the coquettish Célimène, who put the concept of “opposites attract” to the ultimate test. Richard Wilbur’s masterful translation of Molière’s wryly personal comedy begs the question: Can love really be this blind?
