… or Molière in Love; Tirard’s sumptuous speculation on the events that lead to Molière’s writing of Tartuffe, chronicling the eponymous playwright’s brief, farcical dalliance with the very edges of high society, is, with its accomplished performances, excellent production values, and Talgorn’s delightful score, thoroughly entertaining.
