The Barry University Department of Fine Arts, by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. invites the Barry community to “Tartuffe: Born Again,” by Freyda Thomas and Moliere.
Thursday, April 10 – Saturday, April 12 at 7 p.m.
Sunday, April 13 at 2 p.m.
Broad Center for the Performing Arts
This modern adaptation casts Tartuffe as a deposed televangelist who rooks Orgon and his family of their money and property and nearly compromises Orgon's wife. The action takes place in a religious television studio in Baton Rouge where the characters cavort to either prevent or aid Tartuffe in his machinations. Written in modern verse, “Tartuffe: Born Again” adheres closely to the structure and form of the original. Moliere's legendary comedic characters are delightfully at home in this modern day version that played at New York's Circle in the Square.
These events are free and open to the public. For More information please call 305-899-3420 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
