ABOUT BOSSA NOVA

Dee Paradis (Francesca Choy-Kee) has never fit in. Raised on the gentle swing of bossa nova and educated at elite, predominately white schools, she has led a life meticulously designed by her elegant and strong-willed mother, Lady (Ella Joyce). In the split second when she locks eyes with Lady in the mirror before a dinner party, Dee-nearly 30 years old and still torn between her mother's expectations and a former lover's ideals of authenticity-comes face to face with a choice that will determine her future.

Bossa Nova is the recipient of a 2010 Edgerton Foundation New American Plays Award.
TICKET INFORMATION AND PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE

Tickets for BOSSA NOVA range from $10-85, are available online at www.yalerep.org, by phone at (203) 432-1234, and in person at the Yale Rep Box Office (1120 Chapel Street, at York Street). Student, senior, and group rates are also available.
