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.

I love Moliere and know that Jean-Baptiste Poquelin himself would split his knickers reading this wonderful adaptation of his magnum opus. Ms Thomas is a rhyming, comic genius.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
