My favorite role in my favorite production. Monsieur Orgon in Tartuffe. When I first heard the director's concept I knew I was going to talk him out of it. It ended up glorious in its brilliancy: Orgon is Wm Randolf Hearst and the action of the play takes place in a hallway between two huge parties: a newspaper party and a Hollywood party. We performed in a black box and audience in tennis court seating. Two parallel risers facing each other. I was 21 during the production. Someone commented, "Who is that professional older man they brought in for the role?"
