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.

Liz Brasher Releases New Single LOVE FEATS, Plus Announces Debut Album On Fat Possum Records In 2019
by BWW News Desk - Oct 17, 2018

Following a breakout year for Liz Brasher, including cross country tours with rock and roll legends The Psychedelic Furs and The Zombies as well as Red Wanting Blue, today she's announced her follow up to the Outcast EP from earlier this year with a debut full-length album coming on Fat Possum Records January 18th, 2019. Today sees the first taste of the new album with 'Love Feasts' before Brasher heads back on the road with The Psychedelic Furs for an east coast run this fall. Speaking to the single Brasher says 'Love Feasts' is a stream of subconsciousness that came out of me in maybe 10 minutes. It was fast. I had been reading poetry, the book of Jude, and doing a lot of self-reflecting. In turn, it came out as a mixture of beautiful imagery wrapped in darkness. It's not about any one particular thing. It's a song you can look at from different perspectives and still find new meaning over time. At its core it begs the listener to be watchful of who they let in to their intimate space. It also asks them to always forgive when they have been wronged (the inevitable). To undergo purification, reconciliation, and ultimately completely letting go of what has happened.' (more...)
