Moliere in The Grand Prospect Hall
Local entrepreneur John Kolle built The Grand Prospect Hall way back in 1892. Money was no object. His goal was to create a palatial French Renaissance hall that echoed the lavish opulence of Versailles. Grand Prospect Hall was to be the crown jewel of the country, an elegant reflection of Park Slope’s prosperity.
What better venue for Moliere's dark comedy of The 1%?
Join the Brave New World Repertory Theatre Company for a unique production of The Miser at The Grand Prospect Hall! Written in 1668 but shockingly relevant, Moliere's darkest comedy The Miser is a harsh indictment wrapped in pastel-colored candy coating and set in the opulent Grand Prospect Hall. A fable about the one percent performed in modern dress, it shines a spotlight on the economic dependency of today's millennials still living with their parents and chafing under their control. This Brooklyn production hits home, showing how greed poisons the family and society.
