What happens when reality finally catches up to your fantasy life? What happens when your brutal honesty comes back to bite? Alceste’s darkest fears become a reality as the world he has constructed crumbles around him in Lauren Goldman Marshall’s adaptation of Moliere’s THE MISANTHROPE. Based on a concept by Alan DiBona, this “rock ‘n roll” variation on the classic comedy shows us a modern take on this social misfit and his battle for true love.
THE MISANTHROPE features the work of Deniece Bleha, Geb Brown, Val Brunetto, Staci Gaveley, Matt Gilbert, Jalyn Green, Sally Lawson, Jennifer Longmuir, Matt Lyman, Molly Mahar, Nick Matthews, Dan Neidecker, Michael Oaks, Don Sammhan, Jessica Stepka, and Nicole Vernon.
