Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie Presents FROM THE HOUSE OF MIRTH, Now thru 2/24
Opening on Valentine's Day, exactly one year to the day Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie (CLC) re-opened The Citadel, its Regent Park home, CLC proudly presents a remount of its acclaimedFrom the House of Mirth, directed and choreographed byJames Kudelka, from tonight, February 14-24, 2013.
Following last year's completely sold-out run, the production returns to The Citadel for a 10-day engagement.
Inspired by Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth, the novel tells of Lily Bart's tragic descent from the glittering social circle of 1890s New York to poverty and a solitary death; her dreams of marriage - whether for wealth or love - shattered by convention and by her own conflicted desires. Kudelka has created a vocabulary of movement, music and theatre that can evoke the story's moral issues, while illustrating the heroine's inner life and her relationships to the men who help her, make demands on her and would save her.
Performances are tonight, February 14-24, Tues-Sat at 8pm; Sat & Sun at 4pm with added shows Sun Feb. 17 at 8pm & Wed. Feb. 20 at 3pm.
Tickets are $50 except Wed. February 20 at 3pm is PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN. Tickets may be purchased at the box Office: 416-364-8011 or online at colemanlemieux.com.
