The School for Lies

David Ives's frothy rewhipping of Molière’s 1666 Le Misanthrope retains its inspiration’s flavor while showing off its chef’s virtuosic technique. Ives’s rhyming couplets glitter with up-to-date vulgarities, and Walter Bobbie’s confident company‚which includes an antic Hamish Linklater and the adorable Jenn Gambatese—recites them with tangible joie de vivre.—Helen Shaw
