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.

BWW Interviews: Dance as Liberation - Eric Sciotto and Kristen Martin Star in FOOTLOOSE
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Jul 31, 2014

'Dance is a metaphor for expression, for freedom. In Footloose we use dance to express ourselves when we have no words. [As characters] we are all closed off, and finally at the end of the story, we are loosened; we become individuals again.' Speaking is Kristen Martin, who plays Ariel in Maine State Music Theatre's final season production of Footloose, which runs from August 6-23. Her co-star, Eric Sciotto, agrees that his character, Ren, is 'on a journey to find himself after being abandoned by his father. Ren sees in Ariel a troubled soul who reminds him of himself.

Author Juliet Y. Mark Releases Fantasy Series
by BWW News Desk - Jul 31, 2014

The battle of the sexes has been won by the women in 'The Queendom of Evlantis' (ISBN 9780991630707) and 'Sephora's Revenge' (9780991630721) books one and two in the Unfallen Series by Juliet Y. Mark, published by IndieGo Publishing. From the first page of book one, the reader is transported to the ancient city of Evlantis where the men are enslaved to the women. This estrogen-empowered culture celebrates and elevates the relationship between mothers and daughters, while relationships between women and men are outlawed. How this society evolved in this magical fantasy world is revealed as the story unfolds amidst fast-moving drama laced with razor-sharp humor and unexpected romance. In the first book, 'The Queendom of Evlantis,' Low Queen Sephora plots the downfall of High Queen Rachel, the Queendom's beloved ruler. 'Sephora is the ultimate female villain,' says Mark, 'Her goals are to become the most powerful leader in the known world and to cause as much pain and suffering to her enemies as possible.' Rachel and her daughter Arrival are forced to partner with unlikely allies who have agendas of their own. Servus, the self-appointed King of Slaves, sees the political upheaval as the perfect chance to begin a revolt so that he can win the heart of the woman for whom he harbors a forbidden Passion. In 'Sephora's Revenge,' Sephora clashes with Ava, a stranger from outside the city, who is the catalyst of the radical change rocking the Queendom. Sephora adopts a subtler, more cunning approach to attain her goal of supreme rule. Ava, Rachel, and a few of the low queens must navigate Sephora's traps and subterfuge, while Servus faces barriers greater than he ever imagined so that he can be with the woman he loves. The paperback versions of 'The Queendom of Evlantis' and 'Sephora's Revenge' are distributed by Lightning Source/Ingram with a 20 percent discount to wholesalers, and are available through Amazon as well as many other domestic and international booksellers. The ebook versions are available worldwide through Amazon's Kindle, Barnes & Noble's Nook, Google Play, Kobo, and the Apple iBookstore. Juliet Y. Mark's life experiences, love of storytelling, and her family were pivotal to launching her career as an author. Review copies of 'The Queendom of Evlantis' and 'Sephora's Revenge' are available upon request from the author or IndieGo Publishing. (more...)
