Perdita - 2008 - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More


What is it like to be the son of a feminist hero? What is it like to be his mother? "Perdita" is the compelling story of two generations, two genders, two experiences of the same pioneering life. Perdita and her son travel to the four corners of the world and to the very edge of life to find out what it costs to be an inspiration. "Perdita" exposes the good works as well as the lovers, heartbreaks and the difficult balance of family life and career. The play is about the private side of a proud woman's public life and about what it cost her child to be with her while she lived it.

Running Time:

2 hours with one intermission

Con l'avvicinarsi delle feste natalizie in tutto il mondo si rispolverano le varie versioni della celebre novella CANTO DI NATALE di Charles Dickens, a tutti i livelli e in tutte le sue forme: d'altra parte è l'unico periodo dell'anno in cui ha senso rappresentarla. Non tutte le versioni hanno però lo stesso peso e lo stesso valore; in ognuna c'è qualcosa che manca all'altra e viceversa. Questa versione dell'opera scritta dal Maestro Simone Martino già alcuni anni fa, viene presentata in forma concerto dimostrando varie pecche dal punto di vista dell'allestimento, della gestione degli spazi e nella necessità di dover presentare al pubblico una versione ridotta rispetto alla stesura originale: nonostante questo l'atmosfera che si è creata nel piccolo Teatro degli Eroi è stata quasi magica. E non è solo per la magia del Natale.
