The Philanthropist Broadway

$66.50 - $111.50

Two-time Tony Award® winner Matthew Broderick (The Producers) stars in this biting comedy that turns Molieré's The Misanthrope on its cynical ear. Set at an elite British university, The Philanthropist is about nice-guy professor Philip (Broderick), who – in refusing to succumb to his colleagues' excessively critical ways – winds up destroying his own credibility in the twisted world of academia...and in the bedroom!

There's something special about hearing the natural sound of human voices in the theater. They become a symphony of verbosity akin to a chamber ensemble performing in a first rate concert hall. There are nuances and colors that are to be detected without the aid of amplification. Such is the case with the Roundabout Theatre Company's production of THE PHILANTHROPIST which is currently on stage at the American Airlines Theatre.
