Tartuffe

On the outside, Tartuffe is a pious houseguest preoccupied with faith and good deeds, prompting the wealthy Orgon to invite him into his mansion. But in reality, he is a conman, and as the stark contrast between what he preaches and what he practices inspires laughs from the audience, he’s busily swindling his way into Orgon’s flush inheritance. Banned after its premiere by King Louis XIV, who was worried that it made the upper class look foolish, Molière’s classic comedy has gone on to become one of the most lauded and performed theatrical comedies in the world—while its title character has become synonymous with outrageous hypocrisy.

Picasso at the Lapin Agile

Steve Martin’s raucous comedy opens on a bar in Paris in 1904, where two young patrons—physicist Albert Einstein and a certain soon-to-be-famous painter—muse on the century to come, the nature of beauty, and whether or not fellow guest Charles Dabernow Schmendimen will ever make it as a philosopher.

Organic Theater Company

For nearly half a century, the Organic Theater Company has presented classic, contemporary, and adapted productions, relying on the greatest resource any company has: its artists. The resident company's work has not only appeared on stages throughout the city, but also the state and the country—including a stint on Broadway. In 1974, they tackled the world premiere of David Mamet's Sexual Perversity in Chicago, and have since collaborated with celebrated playwrights such as Edward Albee, Wendy Wasserstein, and Sebastian Barry on midwest, US, and world premieres.
