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

The vocals were excellent!! As this was only their 2nd preview, the Artistic Director commented before the show began that they are still ironing out a few things. To this extent, I felt that the blocking for several numbers needed to be reworked to have Bobby (the main character) facing the audience more. Also, the orchestra was excellent, but often times drowned out the performers, especially the female vocals. I think it has the basis to be a really good show once the kinks are worked out.
Set in New York, Sondheim's groundbreaking musical Company tells the story of five couples and their mutual friend Robert who, at age 35, is reluctant to settle down and get married like the rest of his friends. He’s sure that the perfect girl is waiting for him, and until she makes herself known, he is content to amuse himself with the countless women who come to New York every day. So, he watches and learns from the various couples and sees both the wonders and pitfalls of relationships. In the end though, Robert realizes that while relationships rarely turn out like they do in fairy tales, life is still better when you have someone to share it with.
