The production — directed by Ivo van Hove — also has a new cast member. Amelia Campbell has replaced Florencia Lozano in the role of Arsinoe due to scheduling conflicts.
Tony Harrison penned this version of the Molière classic, which will run through Nov. 11. The cast will also feature the previously announced Quincy Tyler Bernstine (as Eliante), Jason C. Brown (Clitandre), Bill Camp (Alceste), Joan MacIntosh (Acaste), Alfredo Narciso (Oronte), Thomas Jay Ryan (Philinte) and Jeanine Serralles (Celimene).
Following up his 2004 staging of Hedda Gabler, director van Hove returns to NYTW "with a fresh, modern perspective – viewing Molière's text through the lens of our society in which the traditional social fabric has frayed and virtual relationships can be deleted with the simple push of a button," according to show notes.
The design team includes Jan Versweyveld (production), Emilio Sosa (costume), Raul Vincent Enriquez (sound) and Tal Yarden (video). Dramaturgy is by Bart Van den Eynde, and the production stage manager is Larry K. Ash.
The NYTW season began with Rinde Eckert's Horizon and Betty Shamieh's The Black Eyed. Forthcoming are JoAnne Akalaitis directing Mikhail Baryshnikov in short plays by Samuel Beckett, Things of Dry Hours by Naomi Wallace and the Elevator Repair Service's staging of The Sound and the Fury. Tickets for The Misanthrope at NYTW, 79 East 4th Street (between Second Ave. and Bowery), are available by calling (212) 239-6200. For more information visit the website at www.nytw.org.
