Tartuffe No Pouf

Moliere's Tartuffe now playing at Shakespeare Theater's Harman stage,  is a tribute to the human body as much as it is to the malicious wit of the 17th century sage. How leading actor Seven Epp manages to sustain such control simultaneously of both contorted movements and full voice is a sight to behold. It isn't for lack of experience, as he is a co-artistic director of the Moving Company responsible for the production. A viewer seeing him on his back on the floor commanding attention of all with both head and legs raised in the air has to wonder how many years of core training it took to acquire such wiles. And to sustain them. Is there a Pilates teacher  in the background getting full credit?
