This timeless comedy of manners is considered one of Molière’s most probing and mature works. While it’s still an exemplar of 16th century farce, Molière went beyond his usual comic inventiveness to create a world of rich, complex characters, especially in the cynical title character Alceste, played here by the Tony® Award-winning actor Brian Bedford. Translated by Richard Wilbur.

An L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance featuring: Brian Bedford as Alceste JD Cullum as Clitandre Sarah Drew as Éliante Martin Jarvis as Philinte Darren Richardson as Basque/Du Bois Susan Sullivan as Arsinoé Nick Toren as Oronte Matt Wolf as Acaste/Guard of the Marshalsea Bellamy Young as Célimène Includes an interview with Larry F. Norman, author of The Public Mirror: Molière and the Social Commerce of Depiction. Directed by Rosalind Ayres. Recorded before a live audience at The Invisible Studios, West Hollywood in June of 2012. Lead funding for The Misanthrope was made possible with support from the Sidney E. Frank Foundation.
