MusicalFare to Present MASTER CLASS, 10/30-12/1
MusicalFare Theatre, Western New York's most awarded and only professional musical theatre company, presents the 2nd production of its 2013-2014 Season, MASTER CLASS. Meet the famed Opera Diva, Maria Callas, a glamorous, commanding, larger-than-life, caustic, and surprisingly drop-dead funny pedagogue holding a voice master class. Alternately dismayed and impressed by the opera students who parade before her, she retreats into recollections about the glories of her own life and career including her younger years as an ugly duckling, her fierce hatred of her rivals, the unforgiving press that savaged her early performances, her triumphs at La Scala, and her affair with Aristotle Onassis. MASTER CLASS, by the acclaimed playwright Terrence McNally, won the 1995 Tony Award.
The production stars Jessica L. Hall, Randall Kramer, Renee Landrigan, Raphael Santos, Michael Wachowiak and Christina Rausa as "Maria Callas." Set Design is by Chris Schenk, Lighting & Sound Design is by Chris Cavanagh, Costume Design is by Kari Drozd and Hair, Wig & Make-up Design is by Susan Drozd.
The performance schedule is October 30th - December 1st, Wednesdays at 7:00pm, Thursdays at 7:00pm, Fridays at 8:00pm, Saturdays at 4:00pm and 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm. There will be a special "half-price preview" on Tuesday, October 29th at 7:00pm. Meet-the-cast talkbacks take place after all Wednesday performances EXCEPT opening night, October 30th. THERE IS NO PERFORMANCE ON THANKSGIVING DAY (THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 28th).
