The Misanthrope or The Snarky Lover: Do you know anyone who thinks they know what is truly right and wrong about everything? In Moliere's comic masterpiece, The Misanthrope, we meet the outspoken, opinionated Alceste, whose only comic flaw is that he thinks his wit, artistry and reasoning are flawless. Of course, he's in love with Celemine, a mistress/master at manipulating a posse o’ many lovers all at once…and all their pals/lovers/frenemies, who live to recite poetry, flirt, be loved and looked at...reminding you of anyone? In verse by the late Poet Laureate of our fair and furious land, Richard Wilbur, your time with The Misanthropewill be spent in a whirl of heightened language, intrigue, high-fashion and laughs.
