Ellen Geer and Peter Alsop Compose Songs for New Adaptation of Tartuffe
In Tartuffe, Molière's rich comic genius is epitomized in the character of the 17th century con artist whose cultured manners and religious devotion mask his true aim--to defraud a naïve gentleman, seduce his wife, marry his daughter, and steal the deed to an elegant estate.
The cast will include Aaron Hendry in the title role, Ted Barton as Orgon, Joanna Bateman as Marianne, Daniel Billet as Damis, Alan Blumenfeld as Cleante, Misha Bouvion as Elmire, Bill Durham as M. Loyal, Liz Eldridge as Flipote, Willow Geer as Dorine, Katherine Griffith as Madam Pernelle, and Jackson McCord Thompson as Valere. Featured in the ensemble are Sydney Blair, Kelly Derouin, Leah Gutentag, and William Reinbold.
Every Friday in September, audiences are invited to feast on a French Provençal buffet dinner in the theater's adjacent gardens at 6:30 pm, followed by an 8pm performance.
