ENC Theatre to Present Tartuffe & All That Jazz
Published: April 12, 2016
The Eastern Nazarene College Theatre Department will present Tartuffe & All That Jazz at 7:30pm April 14-16 in the Cove Fine Arts Center.
Tartuffe – and All That Jazz is a new adaptation of Moliere’s classic French comedy. We are proud to be presenting the world premiere of this new version, set in Roaring Twenties St. Louis against the backdrop of prohibition, the jazz age and fundamentalist/modernist controversies. Like the original, this version features rhymed verse dialogue and a plot centered on a religious conman named Tartuffe who bilks the wealthy but gullible Orgon and tries to seduce his wife.
Gordon Bennett, one of the two playwrights, will be attending our final performance on April 16. He looks forward to interacting with audience and cast.
Tickets for Tartuffe & All That Jazz are $10 general admission, $8 students and seniors. For tickets or more information, call the ENC box office at 617-745-3715 or visit www.brownpapertickets.com.
