L.A.'s acclaimed home of the classics, A Noise Within, stages Tartuffe, one of Moliere's best loved -- and most clever -- comedies. Few scoundrels are as roguish, charming or hilarious as the titular Tartuffe, an impostor who insinuates himself into the home of Orgon and his family, quickly throwing the entire household into chaos. As Orgon's infatuation with his guest and his phony piety grows, Tartuffe's deception threatens to turn downright damaging. This translation of the 1669 original retains all of its witty relevance, and was written by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and U.S. Poet Laureate Richard Wilbur in 1963. Learn More

It is a wonderful presentation of the Dickens classic, very authentically done, with beautiful narration interspersed with visually stunning scenes and costumes. It's one of the two best shows I have seen a "Noise Within". I would have given it 5 stars if the theatre could have licked the acoustic problems it always has. G.H.
