Editorial Reviews

Gorgibus wants his daughter, Celie, to marry a rich man, Valere, instead of Lelie, whom she loves. Celie, lamenting this turn of events while her beloved is away, faints. Her maid catches her and calls out for help.
Sganarelle, who happens to be passing, runs over to hold Celie while her maid runs for aid. Sganarelle's wife, however, sees him holding Celie and suspects the worst. She finds a portrait of Lelie, dropped by Celie when she fainted, and admires his good looks. Sganarelle returns and sees his wife gazing at the portrait, and he too suspects an affair. They argue and run off just as Lelie arrives home, after hearing rumors of Celie's wedding plans.
Sganarelle enters again, holding the portrait, and Lelie is shocked. He asks Sganarelle how he came to have the portrait, and Sganarelle replies that he took it from his wife. Sganarelle's wife comes back and finds Lelie now ready to faint, so she invites him into their home to rest. Sganarelle, of course, then sees Lelie with his wife, and his suspicions are confirmed. But Celie also sees Lelie leaving the house, and approaches Sganarelle, who tells her that Lelie has cuckolded him with his wife.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Bad Production January 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is an extremely low budget production. Bad acting, horrific & largely unintelligible audio, bad makeup, bad sets. It is even burned to the disk badly. It won't play past the ten minute mark in my DVD player and drops out in places on my computer. Very dissapointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A delightful farce. January 21, 2012
This production of Sganarelle is delightful. The fantastic cast is able to inspire instant connections, and keep you laughing the entire time. Twists and turns delivered with perfect timing and superb acting ensure that there is never a dull moment. Combine this with a smaller set and cozy atmosphere, and it makes you feel as though you are sitting in the audience!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Imaginary Cuckold January 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
As a classicist, I appreciate the relationship between the Commedia Dell' Arte and Molière's work with its roots in the ancient Roman comedies more than most. CMHL Enterprises' production of "Sganarelle, or The Imaginary Cuckold" recalls Nathan Lane's rendition of "A Funny Thing Happen on the Way to the Forum", which graced the New York stage several years ago. Michel Duran and company managed to capture the same atmosphere of an earlier age when French farce and Roman comedy played to audiences in stage settings surrounded by the sights and sounds of everyday life. This production of "The Imaginary Cuckold" not only gives non-French speakers the opportunity to enjoy French farce created by a master of the technique, but also offers a refreshing change from the high tech, over-amplified productions of many stage productions one finds in today's theaters.
