The Tony Award winner for Best Play -- and later, adapted to the screen, the Academy Award winner for Best Picture -- returns to the stage. In this classical music-driven drama from Bohemian Theatre Ensemble, composer Antonio Salieri, now in his twilight years, makes a bold claim: He may have killed Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Looking back on his life, Salieri explores his passionate, turbulent rivalry with the boorish but brilliant Mozart, alternating between trusted confidant and devious backstabber. But does Salieri actually have Mozart's blood on his hands, or is this just a way to escape his own obscurity? Interwoven with the masterful music of these two composers, Amadeus explores how far mortal man is willing to go in order to achieve the immortality that comes with being remembered. Learn More

It is the summer of 1930 in Harlem, New York. The Harlem Renaissance has given way to the harsher realities of the Great Depression. Although the streets are overrun with poverty, spirits and dreams are still high among African Americans. Until one lie takes a life, then dreams are broken and families are split forever.
