Tartuffe
by Moliere, Translated by Donald M. Frame
Directed by Josh Chambers
February 21 - March 22, 2009

Pop art and industrial music lift Moliere's delicious rhymes and indictment of hypocrisy and drop 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."

Intellectually absorbing, this production is also visually stunning.”   -Pasadena Arts Smarts

“Everything about the production is done with skill and expertise, and the performances are faultless.”   -Backstage West

“If you’re tired of the usual Tartuffe routines, this version will certainly grab your attention.”   -LA City Beat

“Totally amazing…risk-seeking audiences will be glad they donned their designer thinking caps for this highly original deconstruction of the classic French play.”   -LA Times

“Entrancing and provocative…arresting staging and psychological depth.”   -Examiner.com

Impressive…one to discuss long after the play is over.”   -Pasadena Star-News

Fascinating and riveting…of all the Tartuffes seen so far, this is by far the most imaginative and compelling.  It should be on your list of “must see” plays.  Pick of the week.”   -Reviewplays.com
