Vagabond Players to Kick Off 98th Season with THE MISANTHROPE, 9/6-29
The Vagabond Players opens its 98th season with a contemporary production of Moliere's The Misanthrope, translated by Richard Wilbur. This high comedy is directed by Howard Berkowitz; it runs weekends September 6 through the 29th.
Alceste decides he will live and speak only the truth, but, alas, he is hindered by the hypocrisy of his social circle and the machinations of love. He is also humbled by his own double standard. He falls in love with a lovely woman who epitomes the falseness he despises. When he and his friends gather, it makes for one satiric cocktail party. Eric C Stein and Laura Malkus lead the talented cast also featuring: Rich Espey, Cherie Weinert, Daniel Douek, Jessica Behar, Adam Bloedorn and Matthew Shea.
Located at 806 S. Broadway, the Vagabond Theatre is easily accessible to patrons.
Show times are Friday and Saturday at 8:00; Sunday at 2:00
