vorführen

Meanings

1.
to show, to present, to demonstrate
(The first example that comes to my mind is a person presenting a new tech product, showing all it can do. For theater plays, the verb "spielen" is more common. )
2.
to lead forward, to lead to the front
(Not common in this sense. "nach vorne führen" is the idiomatic choice here.)
3.
to make someone look like a fool, to show somebody up
("jemanden vorführen" - The idea is that you create a situation where you "showcase" someone's lack of knowledge or incompetence. )
