Description

Though the rest of the family goes to hilarious lengths to show Orgon the error of his ways and expel Tartuffe from their home, the con man always seems to be one step ahead of them. BoHo Theatre boldly sets its production of Tartuffe in a Steampunk setting, highlighting how alienating and strange a changing world can be.

About the Ticket Supplier: Bohemian Theatre Ensemble

Mission:
Creating theatre that incorporates the arts as a whole -- Art for art's sake.

Vision:
To challenge convention through literary originality and eclectic expression while fostering an ever-evolving artistic environment in which people are inspired to learn, think, dream, and feel. To teach others and ourselves how to expand, create, and present art through theatre while reveling not only in the process, but also in the journey.

Being "Bohemian":
Bohemia is not so much a place on a map but a timeless concept that knows no geographic boundaries. The Bohemian recognizes that cherishing all aspects of art is tantamount to progression of mankind as more than just a living being.

The Four Basic Principles of the Bohemian represent their core values:

Truth -- That which is at the core of all things good and soulful
Beauty -- The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. -Aristotle
Freedom -- Without freedom, no art; art lives only on the restraints it imposes on itself, and dies of all others. -Camus
Love -- Life in abundance comes only through great love.
