About this show

The Misanthrope is an ensemble-created contemporary explosion of Moliere's classic social comedy inspired in equal part by Ingmar Bergman, indie rock, and the New York rental market, it explores the nature of desire in our generation. The world is both familiar and strange - set in present day New York among a group of artists and intellectuals, The Misanthrope looks at how we form and destroy our social communities. Feelings of love, desire, jealously and insecurity are masked and unmasked throughout the play in comedic and dramatic fashion with music, movement, and verse. The Misanthrope will play as part of the underground zero festival at Performance Space 122.
