    Theater: Ohio Theatre / 66 Wooster Street, New York, New York, 10012

    Synopsis: 

    Lust. Betrayal. Air kisses. What happens when the Hater hates himself for loving? A speed-punk score with kick-ass dance. A mise en scene for the glamorously debauched. An amphetamine fueled, post-post simulacra of the French classic. A comedy of manners for the very rude.

  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Hater

    Full of Hateful Thoughts, Yet Hopelessly in Love

    Andy Webster

    July 23, 2010: Sofia Coppola, in her film “Marie Antoinette,” chose the gothy new-wave stylings of Siouxsie and the Banshees and the Cure (with some Vivaldi) as the soundtrack for the French aristocracy. The playwright-director Samuel Buggeln takes a more contemporary tack, opting for throbbing club music. In “Hater” — his antic take on Molière’s comedy “The Misanthrope,” at the Ohio Theater as part of SoHo Think Tank’s Ice Factory Festival — the artifice of the sneering moneyed classes has a disco accent. Bling baroque, if you will.
