Spend June with a comic genius! Join us for a month-long celebration of Molière, whose scathing comic dramas are as hilarious and true as ever. Each week, an ensemble of New York actors will perform his works as radio dramas. Come prepared for belly laughs and blushes.

The Misanthrope is Moliere’s comic masterpiece, indicting a frivolous Parisian society and its most scathing critic, with sharp observations about the nature of friendship, ambition, and courtship that still resonate today.

Directed by Jesse Berger (Artistic Director, Red Bull Theater) and featuring Hamish Linklater, Christian Conn, Cameron Folmar, Sean McNall, Charlotte Parry, Amanda Quaid and CJ Wilson.
