The MisanthropeDownloadable Audiobook - 2013
This timeless comedy of manners is considered one of Moliere's most probing and mature works. While it's still an exemplar of 16th century farce, Moliere went beyond his usual comic inventiveness to create a world of rich, complex characters, especially in the cynical title character Alceste, played here by the Tony Award-winning actor Brian Bedford. This recording also includes an interview with Larry F. Norman author of The Public Mirror: Moliere and the Social Commerce of Depiction . An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Brian Bedford as Alceste; JD Cullum as Clitandre; Sarah Drew as Eliante; Martin Jarvis as Philinte; Darren Richardson as Basque and Du Bois; Susan Sullivan as Arsinoe; Nick Toren as Oronte; Matt Wolf as Acaste and Guard; Bellamy Young as Celimene.
