In a rollicking commedia infused re-telling of Moliere’s Tartuffe, the NYU Commedia Company will present their version of the classical tale of how an imposter took over a household with deceit, lies, and fake news. The commedia company’s 15 actors will sing, dance, and play 30 different characters in the course of this one-hour re-telling. This generously scripted, improvised and fractured story will play between today’s political realities and 17th-century love entanglements in a quest to discover how self-delusion can easily influence love, religion and national affairs.
