Matthew Broderick stars in the Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of Christopher Hampton's comedy The Philanthropist, directed by David Grindley. Written as a response to Molière's The Misanthrope, Hampton's biting bourgeois comedy examines the empty, insular lives of college intellectuals. At the center of the story is Philip (Broderick), a professor who seems almost absurdly removed from the political turmoil surrounding him, including the assassination of the Prime Minister and his cabinet.
