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.

The Weiss Gallery Presents CHELSEA GIRLS at LA Gallery
by BWW News Desk - Jul 21, 2014

The Weiss Gallery is currently exhibiting the latest works of New York artist and filmmaker Marko Stout, 'Chelsea Girls' at their Los Angeles Gallery until 7/31/14. The Weiss Gallery is pleased to announce the solo exhibition of Marko Stout's 'Chelsea Girls' at their Los Angeles Gallery. Marko Stout is a New York City based multimedia artist and filmmaker best known for establishment of NYC Microcinema, an experimental French New Wave film style. Although Marko developed his Passion for art while living aboard a houseboat in the bohemian San Francisco community of Sausalito, this is his first solo California show since return to New York City in 2005. Marko Stout utilizes both traditional static prints and film as he subverts mainstream conceptions of female sexuality in his latest exhibition 'Chelsea Girls.' In this multi-media series, Marko abandons the cliché of idealizing beauties as serene and attainable in accordance with fantasies of the viewer. His series opposes this convention by depicting young females as fierce and independent within their contemporary urban contexts. Each of Marko's fresh-faced girls reveal a strong, unwavering presence, while appearing oppositional to the spectator's gaze. With their confrontational stare and unwelcoming body language, they all undermine the viewer's observation and remain in control of their sexuality. By confronting the spectator so poignantly, Marko is able to undermine dominant notions about sexuality. Marko opposes convention by depicting young females as fierce and independent within their contemporary urban contexts. As he depicts the females with an unparalleled sensitivity to their nature, he unveils an obscure mysticism in each woman. Ultimately, these women remind us that despite the intrinsic softness of their youth, they will not be overpowered by the viewer and by boldly confronting sexual stereotypes in art Marko Stout innovatively subverts mainstream conceptions of female sexuality. Marko defies dominant depictions of women by replacing the elements of provocation with ferocity and urban trendiness. The girl's intense glare and oppositional body language indicates her ownership over her body, rising above the clutches of the viewer's glance. Despite her empowerment, she is still youthful and soft, traits that are conventionally pleasing. Consequently, Marko shows that a woman's lushness and desirability can still transmit a defiant vigor that rises beyond the limits of the male gaze. 'Chelsea Girls' is an multimedia expansion of Marko Stout's 2013 exhibition 'American Dream' which was exhibited in New York City and followed was by a solo exhibition in Berlin at Die Bachmeier Gallerie in early 2014. Marko's lasts exhibition, 'Chelsea Girls' premiered at Marko Stout's Gallery in the Chelsea area of New York City 5/2/12 thru 5/30/14. The works are now currently on exhibit at the Weiss Gallery in downtown Los Angeles, CA until 7/31/14. For More Information Please Visit :- http://www.markostout.com (more...)
