Based on the film Passione d'Amore directed by Ettore Scola


Based on the novel Fosca by I. U. Tarchetti

PASSION, winner of 4 Tony Awards including Best Music and Lyrics, Best Book, and Best Musical, features music and lyrics by the acclaimed Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, West Side Story, Company, Follies, Into The Woods, Gypsy) and book by James Lapine (Falsettos, Into The Woods, Sunday In The Park With George).





PASSION opened on Broadway in 1994, and received its London revival in 2010 at the Donmar Warehouse as part of Stephen Sondheim's 80th birthday celebrations.



Stephen Sondheim's PASSION revolves around a handsome Italian solider, Giorgio, separated from his beautiful mistress, who is shattered and ultimately changed by the unconditional and obsessive love of Fosca, his Colonel's chronically ill and plain cousin. Her unrelenting passions force him to re-evaluate his beliefs about love and attraction between two human beings.

by BWW News Desk - Jul 1, 2015

Stephen Sondeim's 'A Little Night Music,' winner of four Tony Awards in1973, is a musical comedy that has entranced the world. Suggested by a film by Ingmar Bergman, 'A Little Night Music' explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desiree Armfeldt (Jemima Lipari of Plainfield) and two men who love her: a married lawyer by the name of Fredrick Egerman (Ernest Ray of Bolingbrook,) and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom (Michael Frale of Elk Grove). When Desiree performs in Frerdick's town, the estranged lovers' Passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Fredrick's wife, Anne (Savannah Reisenberg of Plainfield), Desiree's current lover, the Count, and the Count's wife, Charlotte (Kathy Fields of Lockport). Both men- as well as their jealous wives- join Desiree and her family on the summer solstice for 'A Weekend in the Country.' With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises. This musical celebration of love contains a harmonically advanced score, and Sondheim's hauntingly beautiful 'Send in the Clowns.' (more...)
