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.

John Baird Jr. Releases BEYOND THE MYSTIC
by BWW News Desk - Aug 30, 2016

John Baird is the writer and author of the novel, 'Beyond The Mystic'. John first discovered his love for the art of writing when he got involved with a drama club in middle school. From that point on, John thought he was destined to become a writer, but years turned over before he would truly discover what it meant to be a writer. During the recession, John was forced to relocate, so his family could keep up with the cost of living. He was only 16 at this point. He and his family made a new home for themselves in the state of Georgia. He finished high school there, and then had to move in order to make ends meet yet again. John found a new home in the state of Oklahoma. It was there that John searched for employment for some time, until finally, he found a job at a warehouse/factory. John's job was quite remedial, which allowed him to think about whatever. John spent most of his time creating 'Beyond The Mystic' in his mind. Today, John lives in Oklahoma, and he cannot wait to write his next book. (more...)
