This was an enjoyable production. Great set and costumes and very strong lead performers. The supporting cast was a bit hit or miss, but all in all it's worth seeing.

A gripping production. Edward Gero did a masterful job and Sasha Olinick was fascinating to watch in all the different poses and moods Peter Shaffer chooses to show us. The play has aged well.

Description

When your hard-earned fame has been surpassed by a brilliantly gifted, potty-mouthed golden boy, what else can you do but smile to his face while secretly plotting his downfall? Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus, winner of seven Tony Awards ‑ including Best Play ‑ and the Oscar for Best Picture, depicts the flamboyant genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as seen through the eyes of his desperately jealous contemporary, composer Antonio Salieri.

With Edward Gero (Nixon’s Nixon_) as Antonio Salieri, Sasha Olinick (_Around the World in 80 Days, The Talented Mr. Ripley_) as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Laura C. Harris (_26 Miles) as Constanze Weber, and DC theatre favorite Floyd King as Emperor Joseph II. _ _ Mark Ramont, from Ford’s Theatre, directs a towering story of greed, obsession, and guilt set to the glorious music of revenge.
