Photo Flash: First Look At Theater Simple's THE MASTER AND MARGARITA

Get your first look at theater simple's adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita. The award-winning staging runs April 5-27 at Theatre Off Jackson.

theater simple 'breaks and remakes' their award-winning take on Mikhail Bulgakov's satire The Master and Margarita. In this new iteration, composer Brent Arnold ("Ghost Quartet", "Night, Exquisite") has created a new score, and the production will feature live music from onstage musicians. Originally staged in 1996, the world has changed, and it's time to look to see what else has shifted. From sold-out tours in Canada, the US and Australia, M&M was been theater simple's most requested work, and given the state of global politics, it seemed ripe for re-examination.

THE BASICS: 1932: The Devil comes to Moscow, demonic entourage in tow, to learn if Stalin's politics have actually changed human nature... This story is tangled up in interesting ways with a re-telling of a fateful meeting with Pontius Pilate. Be prepared to witness 5 actors taking on the challenge of 35+ characters, with onstage musicians playing a brand-new musical score by Brent Arnold.

Directed by Rachel Katz Carey, assisted by Andrew Litzky; designed by Doris Black (costumes) and Jason Meininger (lights) and composed by Brent Arnold. Stage managed by Madisen Crowley. The cast includes Nathan Brockett, Jennifer Faulkner, Llysa Holland, Monique Kleinhans, and Teague M. Parker. Musicians Julie Baldridge and Scott Adams accompany the performance.
