What would happen if rock titan Joan Jett fell in love with Justin Bieber ? If Dave Grohl languished for Selena Gomez? Something would hit the fan(s), to be sure. In this new verse adaptation of Moliere's classic, Alceste is a brooding rock musician who rages against the big music industry machine–but loves and pursues an empty-headed self-absorbed but pretty pop icon. Punk-rock divas, rappers, promoters, critics, hipster-douchebags, and dancers fill this world, one not unlike Moliere's milieu, the 17th-century court of French King Louis XIV. Sharp and immediate, The Misanthrope hilariously scrutinizes the fine line between art and commerce, honesty and censure, love and hate.
