Tartuffe is a re-envisioned classic of Molière's most famous play. Directed by Josh Chambers and translated by Donald M. Frame, pop art and industrial music lift Molière's delicious rhymes and indictment of hypocrisy and drops them in our own back yard, the San Fernando Valley. Suburbia becomes the battleground for a spiritual and cultural civil war between art and commerce, charlatan and saint. This "Tartuffe" upends the expectations of a Comedy of Manners in the pastel washes and smog-stained environs of "The Other Hollywood."
Tartuffe features Tim Cummings playing the role of Orgon. Cummings' recent stage shows include Frankie & Johnny in the Clair de Lune starring Edie Falco & Stanley Tucci, The Pursuit of Happiness at Laguna Playhouse, The Last Schwartz, and Burn This. The cast also features Antonio Anagaran, Jaime Andrews, Teressa Byrne, Matt Foyer, Adam Harrington, Megan Heyn, Judith Scarpone and Blake Silver.
