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.

A traveler well on her way to sampling bites at every vegan restaurant in America will be one of the featured speakers at the 7th annual NYC Vegetarian Food Festival, May 20-21, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan.

She is now focused on creating the first nationally-televised vegan travel show. Her talk will be featured on day one of the festival. Along with scrumptious food stories, she'll let people in on exactly what it's like to maintain a location-independent lifestyle indefinitely. Another social media guru to be featured is Ellen Kanner who will speak on 'Garden of Earthly Delights: Fueling Passion with Plants.' She is the author of Feeding the Hungry Ghost, and is also the Huffington Post's Meatless Monday blogger and a syndicated columnist for The Edgy Veggie. A recipe developer for numerous other publications, her talk promises to be filled with mouth-watering treats. Several of the other headliners on tap will give a medical slant to their presentations. Dr. Robert Ostfeld will speak on 'Confessions of a Reformed Cardiologist: A Plant-Based Diet and Your Heart.' Ostfeld is associate professor of Clinical Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, director of the Cardiac Wellness Program at Montefiore Medical Center, and associate director of the Cardiology Fellowship at Montefiore-Einstein. He received his training from the University of Pennsylvania, Yale University School of Medicine, the Harvard School of Public Health, and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Chiti Parikh will zero in on the 'Gut Microbiome and Your Health.' She is an assistant professor at Weill Cornell Medical College where she plays an active role in medical education, research and patient care. She is also the co-founder of the Integrative Health program at New York PresbyterianHospital, which provides services such as acupuncture, meditation, yoga, nutrition, psychotherapy, and biofeedback.

He recently authored Motivational Methods for Animal Advocacy: A Clinical Psychology Perspective. His upcoming book is Millennial Vegan: Tips for Navigating Relationships, Wellness, and Everyday Life as a Young Animal Advocate, which will be the focus of his festival talk. Many more speakers will grace the festival stages, including animal rights organizers, vegan chefs, and vegan athletes. There will be cooking demonstrations and book signings. A special area of the festival grounds will be devoted to children's activities. There will be a variety of entertainment as well, including a performance by the Edward Morgan Ballet and a screening of the short documentary film Home on the Range. For many attendees, however, the main attraction will be the chance to sample and buy wares from the scores of plant-based vendors that will fill the festival space. Main courses, desserts, snacks and condiments will be showcased along with apparel, beauty products, and other vegan lifestyle items. The New York City Vegetarian Food Festival is presented by U.S. Veg Corp, a production and marketing company which also founded and produces the Arizona and California Vegetarian Food Festivals. Additionally, it produces other plant-based events throughout the year including various vegan food competitions, Vegan Drinks Brooklyn, and other smaller scale events.
