about this item

This timeless comedy of manners is considered one of Molière's most probing and mature works. While it's still an exemplar of 16th century farce, Molière 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.

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/Du Bois

Susan Sullivan as Arsinoe

Nick Toren as Oronte

Matt Wolf as Acaste/Guard

Bellamy Young as Celimene

Directed by Rosalind Ayres. Translated by Richard Wilbur. Recorded at The Invisible Studios, West Hollywood, CA.
