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

This play was okay. The acting was decent, especially by the actor who played the youngest of the three men trapped. However, the script dragged at times and the use of the silhouetted figures in the background to illustrate past events was distracting. You were so busy trying to figure out what they were doing that you lost track of the dialog. Plus, there were a few that I didn't understand which character's past they were displaying. Also, most of the action took place on the floor of the stage and it was very difficult to see from the seats further back. Given this, I'm not sure I would recommend this play to others.
