About this show

The Classical Theater of Harlem presents the Off-Broadway premiere of Archbishop Supreme Tartuffe by Alfred Preisser & Randy Weiner, directed by Preisser. This original play with music is inspired by Moliere's great comic classic and informed by the gloriously unorthodox ministries of Reverend Ike, Daddy Grace, and Rasputin. Set within a fabulously theatrical Harlem Renaissance-era "church", the play explores the outrageously creative criminal mind of the title character through a series of songs, dances, sermons and feats of divine inspiration. The cast is headed by two-time Tony Award nominee André DeShields (most recently seen opposite Jeremy Irons and Joan Allen in Impressionism), Ted Lange (best known for his role as Isaac the bartender on the TV series The Love Boat), and Kim Brockington (Guiding Light, Angela's Mixtape).
