On the same night, Le Théâtre Français de Seattle, will present two performances of Molière’s one-act, Les Précieuses ridicules, one in French and one in the new English translation by the Director, Prof. Scott Taylor of Western Washington University in Bellingham.  “Rather than use the common translation of Precious Maidens Ridiculed, I have translated the title as Princess Butterflies because it evokes both the flightiness and beauty of the play’s two main female characters, Magdelon & Cathos.

The director has chosen to present both the English and French versions in two very distinct theatrical styles: the English version will be presented first, and will be set in modern day Hollywood with our main characters played as Hollywood starlets and over-the-top “metrosexuals”; the French version will be performed in a circus-like style in the tradition of Jacques Le Coq. 

“ We have assembled a cast of mostly native or near native speakers in the French production, whereas most of the actors in the English language production are American,” said Taylor.

“I hope to make Molière relevant to contemporary audiences so that the universal messages of his works continue to resonate,”  continued Prof. Taylor.

(Eastside Prep School is not sponsoring the event.  TFSeattle is renting the space, which is located across the street from the South Kirkland Park and Ride at the intersection of SR 520 and Lake Washington Blvd/ Bellevue Way in South Kirkland, WA .)
