Incredibly old play, done in a fairly contemporary way through the use of music and costumes. Great acting. Very unique setting where the audience was basically part of the stage. Loved the intimate setting also. Very funny and well done.

Staging, execution and performances were all well done (though wasn't a huge fan of the girl that did Dorine)...The play itself was repetitive and shrill, though the second act was much better than the first.

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.
