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.

Lilly Burgos, Brooklyn artist, also know as Miss Lilly Bee has announced a public viewing of her new body of art work, 'Mandorla' at the BWAC Outer Limits Spring Art Show on the Red Hook Pier, at 499 Van Brunt Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231, from April 26-June 1st. The opening reception is on Saturday, April 26th at 1:00-5:30 PM. 'Mandorla' is a Mixed Media and Photography exhibit that explores the different facets of power cycles, strength and control in the lives and experiences of women today. The artist is looking to create a greater consciousness of the gender roles and the subconscious dialogues and scripts that have been fed to women by society, culture, and religion. Through out time, women have found ways to share their struggles with the gender roles imposed on them, including vision of self, present and future in order to connect and communicate with their community in a way that words can not. Lilly's artistic expression in 'Mandorla' is an example of this type of self knowledge and consciousness. She believes that through self knowledge we will become empowered and effective women that can meet the challenges of living in the modern world. About Miss Lilly Bee: Lilly Burgos is a Mixed Media artist, Photographer, Interior Designer, Makeup Artist and a lover of art, all things colorful, curious and aesthetically pleasing. Her Passion for cultural and social issues, the human experience, world travel, and Design directly influence her creative world. Lilly's goal is to always create art that is whimsical, nostalgic and unique. Her current themes range from women's issues, gender equality, Pin-Ups, Shoes & Fashion to Lingerie and Erotica. Overall, Lilly creates artwork that evokes thought on the power of women in today's world. (more...)
