Recording for Chicago Theater on the Air, L.A. Theatre Works produced this classic by Molière with positive results. THE MISANTHROPE, epitomized by the character of Alceste, is the study of a man high and noble in nature who is alienated from the world by insincerity and hypocrisy. The dramatization presents the intrigues amid the salons of seventeenth-century France at its stylish best. Wonderfully clear vocal characterizations are provided by a highly skilled cast led by Kevin Gudahl, Hollis Resnik, and Harry Althaus. The sound is uneven at times, and, though recorded live, audience reaction is rather quiet. Taking the play as a whole, however, the listener should be enthralled by these characters and revel in their sardonic misadventures.
