Theater for the New City, Crystal Field, Executive Director, and The After Dinner Opera Company present "The Power of Love", two new american operatic musicals adapted from classic works: Seymour Barab's operatic parody "Out The Window", based on Georges Feydeau's Farce "Par La Fenetre", and "Rappaccini's Daughter", a musical tale with music by Michael Cohen and libretto by Linsey Abrams, based on Nathanial Hawthorne's Gothic Short Story. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Out the Window

Set in the late 1950's/60's 'Mad Men' era, Out the Window is a one act comic opera adapted from Georges Feydeau's farce "Par La Fenetre." When a willful wife and hapless husband who don't happen to be married to each other get together to combat a scourge of jealously, will the cure turn out to be worse than the disease? Or, will love prevail?

Out the Window stars Lauren Hoffmeier and James Parks.

Rappaccini's Daughter, a musical tale

Rappaccini's Daughter, from the story by Nathaniel Hawthorne, is a gripping Gothic tale set in medieval Italy. Two young lovers with their dreams of a shared future, become the victims of the brilliant Dr. Rappaccini, intent on changing the very laws of nature. No one is safe from his scientific experiments, not even his own daughter-and no one can stop him except, perhaps, for Professor Baglioni, an unheralded doctor committed to healing and humanity. The evil secret lies in a garden.

Rappaccini's Daughter stars Samantha Britt, William Broderick*, Darcy Dunn, Martin Fisher, and Douglas McDonnell with Michelle Lamb, Bryan Ernesto Menjivar, Michelle West, Masami Ishibashi, Amanda Yachechak, and Gloria Makino*.*Member, Actors' Equity Association. AEA Showcase.
