A Note From Moni Yakim

Dear Charles [E. Gerber, Director of and Actor in],

Thank you for inviting me to 'Tartuffe.' Over the years, I have seen many productions of the play. Yours ranks among the best of them. You have assembled a wonderfully talented and spirited cast. Your choice of the translation by Paul Weidner was brilliant.

About Show: 

From Dr. Elizabeth A. Pallitto, Faith University, January 31, 2011

I am just writing to let you know how much we (my students and I) enjoyed the production of Tartuffe directed by Charles Gerber. I loved the acting and wanted to mention how much I enjoyed Cleanté's "sensible" speeches and facial expressions: ranging from disbelief to disgruntlement to a saintly patience with the silliness of Mme. Pernelle and Tartuffe himself. The cast had chemistry, energy, and great wit in their interpretations of the super-clever translation.
