Photo Flash: Rehearsals Begin For The Pearl's THE MISANTHROPE
THE Pearl Theatre Company (J.R. Sullivan, Artistic Director; Shira Beckerman, Managing Director) proudly presents Molière's wryly personal comedy, The Misanthrope, translated into English verse by the renowned and prolific Richard Wilbur. The production begins performances on January 14 at New York City Center Stage II and is directed by the former Artistic Director of Milwaukee Repertory Theater, Joseph Hanreddy. The Misanthrope is supported by The Florence Gould Foundation and the Grand Marnier Foundation. Tickets are currently on sale through CityTix® and at nycitycenter.org.
Using Richard Wilbur's "great rhymed-verse translation" (The New York Times), The Misanthrope satirizes the hypocrisies of French aristocratic society, chronicling an eventful day in the unstable love-life of the petulant Alceste and a flirtatious young gossip, Célimène, and the many fops and fools flitting in and out of her fashionable salon.
