The Marriage of Figaro opens tonight!
By Beaumarchais
Directed by
Francine Roussel

music composed by
Mike Krisukas

Curtis Dretschcostume design by

Nina Pongratz

Writing a few years before the French Revolution, Beaumarchais pours his rage at the aristocracy into a comedy of class and sexual inequality that manages equal parts hilarity and outrage. Originally produced in 1784, the play served as inspriation for Mozart's famous 1786 opera.

Three years after the happy ending of The Barber of Seville (to which Marriage is a sequel), it’s the valet’s turn to marry. But his master the Count has tired of his lovely Countess and lusts for Figaro’s bride-to-be, Suzanne; he determines to revive the ancient droit du seigneur—the lord of the manor’s right to bed any new bride on her wedding night. Figaro and the women concoct a counter-plot, but the Count’s page, Cherubin, makes hash of it through his passionate crush on the Countess. The multiple layers of misunderstanding yield one of the most perfect farce scenes of all time, in one of the most scathing critiques of aristocratic privilege ever written.

New Visions Directors' Festival opens Wednesday!
Don't miss this showcase of rarely produced, avant-garde theatre pieces, staged by some of our most promising up-and-coming theatre artists. The festival includes two evenings, presented in repertory. Attend both and save! See below for details.
Iphigenia and Other Daughters
by Ellen McLaughlin
directed by Danielle Barlow

"The world will never forgive us if we do not make sense of it."
McLaughlin’s modern adaptation of the legend of Agamemnon and the aftermath of the Trojan War offers a bold, provocative feminist perspective on a story of lust, fury, sacrifice and rebellion. The "good girl" of the bloodiest family in Greek legend, Iphigenia is sent in a time of suffering and war as a sacrifice to appease the gods. She is saved at the eleventh hour, but by then her family has spiraled into vengeful obsession and self-destruction, leaving her to seek her own path from the wreckage.
Wed, March 20 — 7 p.m.
Thu, March 21 — 10 p.m.
Fri, March 22 — 7 p.m.
Sat, March 23 — 10 p.m.
Sun, March 24 — 2 p.m.
