Dominique Serrand knows his Molière, having been blessed with a grandmother who took him to the great French satirist’s plays from the time he was a child. As an adult—and a director—Serrand has been lauded for his stagings of Tartuffe. On May 16, First Night of SCR’s production, playgoers were convinced that this is the Tartuffe that tops them all.
“I thought the play was magnificent in all ways,” said Tim Weiss, Honorary Producer with his wife, Jean. “The acting, the directing, the music, the set—all combined to make the performance one of the best I have enjoyed. ”
Honorary Producers Bette and Wylie Aitken, agreed. “Dominque and the entire creative team at SCR have hit the ultimate grand slam of live theatre. A truly magical experience,” said Bette.
Strolling on Ela’s Terrace after the show, greeting cast members and designers and sipping “Earthly Desires” (SCR’s version of a French cosmopolitan) everyone agreed that this Tartuffe was a grand ending to the monumental 50th Season.
