A Misanthrope, a new distillation of Molière's classic comedy by Manhattan-based playwright Matt Minnicino. May 30 to June 30, 2019.
A Misanthrope is a brisk, biting comedy about a cynic who thinks insincerity is a sin—but the joke’s on him when he falls for an ingenue who’s more than his intellectual equal. Minnicino’s A Misanthrope is written in slang-filled rhyming couplets, one howler after another. Hypocrisy has never been more hilarious.
