Show Synopsis:
Written as a response to Molière’s classic play The Misanthrope, Christopher Hampton’s biting bourgeois comedy The Philanthropist examines the empty, insular lives of university intellectuals.  At the center of the story is Philip (played by Matthew Broderick), a professor who seems almost absurdly removed from the political turmoil surrounding him, including the assassination of the Prime Minister and his cabinet.

Genre:
Comedy

Cast List:
Matthew Broderick

Production Credits:
David Grindley (Direction)

Other Credits:
Christopher Hampton (Play)

Age No minimum age is specified by the theater, but babies cannot be brought to the show.

Summary Matthew Broderick plays the nicest and dullest man ever in this 1971 play about a university professor whose life and world is so insulated that he is barely fazed by assassination, suicide, and the other dramas that surround him - including his own love life.

Our Recommendation
Written by Christopher Hampton (Les Liaisons Dangereuses), The Philanthropist displays some wit, edginess, and a number of interesting ideas, but under David Grindley's direction this production is a bit listless.
