No matter how you say it, it's funny.
Orgon is a very happy man. He has a lovely family, a beautiful new wife, an incredible fortune and a spiritual advisor who promises him eternal bliss. Unfortunately, he is about to lose it all. He’s fallen into the trap of a pious imposter, the hilarious hypocrite Tartuffe. Preaching piety, two faced Tartuffe is plotting to steal Orgon’s fortune, marry his daughter, seduce his wife and take over his home. Can anything stop him? Triad Stage presents one of the world’s funniest comedies and dares to shake up a theatrical classic to find its very contemporary heart.

Triad Stage's Tartuffe, or the Hypocrite Is a Riotous Blast from the Past
Classical Voice of North Carolina
June 14, 2009

This is French playwright Molière, himself a 17th-century version of a stand-up comic, molded into Steve Martin.
