co-presented with FIAF, in partnership with PPA and LeFrak Center at Lakeside

On May 2nd 2020, Molière in the Park live streamed The Misanthrope via YouTube and Facebook with actors based in New York City, a farm in Wisconsin, and Perugia, Italy. Despite a couple of technical hiccups, the show succeeded in bringing people together to experience live theater in the midst of a global pandemic and provided a welcome distraction for over 4,000 viewers.

Thank you to everyone who joined us live for The Misanthrope or watched it afterward. Our team was absolutely glowing from all the kind words and support we received and we are thrilled that we could share this moment with you.

"When the cast reappeared to take their Zoom bows, inclining their heads toward their computer cameras, they were greeted with written “bravo”s and the sound—joyful to imagine—of many yellow hand emojis clapping."

“I was surprised how much it affected me. I felt that i was sitting in the theater”

“THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! I can't wait to see a production in Prospect Park one day! ❤️”

- Audience Reactions

“That might be the best Misanthrope I’ve ever seen. Those actors are perfection. And I kind of think Molière was writing for Zoom and didn’t know it.”

“Molière always so sexy!”

- Audience Reactions

“The ‘sets’ are so beautiful!!! Nice work. Amazing acting! Fantastic job! Loved it!!!”

“The costume changes though. On a Zoom reading. I don't deserve this level of dedication!”
