Pianist Rafal Blechacz, one of the emerging superstars of the world of classical music, comes to Wortham Theater Center. The Polish musician was recently awarded the 2014 Gilmore Artist Award, a prestigious accolade given only every fourth year to one of the world's top concert pianists. Blechacz is no stranger to such acclaim, however, as he was the winner of the 2005 Frederic Chopin Piano Competition, where he swept every First Prize. Blechacz's brilliant technique and musical sense have earned him bookings at top concert halls around the globe, and six hit albums on Deutsche Grammophon. Learn More

Now in its second smash year, The Screwtape Letters’ National Tour has delighted capacity audiences in 50 major cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Boston, Salt Lake City, Orlando, Seattle, Dallas and Houston. Over 200,000 have seen this production on tour, which continues to attract a national following.
The Screwtape Letters creates a topsy-turvy morally inverted universe set in an eerily stylish office in hell, where God is called the “Enemy” and the devil is referred to as “Our Father below.” The play follows His Abysmal Sublimity Screwtape, Satan’s top psychiatrist (due to his profound understanding of human nature), and his slavish creature-demon Toadpipe, as they train an apprentice demon, Wormwood, on how to ruin the life and damn the soul of an unsuspecting human on earth. Screwtape is played by award-winning actor Max McLean.
Along with The Chronicles of Narnia (including The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe), _The Great Divorce and Mere Christianity_, The Screwtape Letters is still one of Lewis’ most popular and influential works. The book’s piercing insight into human nature and the lucid and humorous way Lewis makes his readers squirm in self-recognition made it an immediate success. When first published in 1942 it brought worldwide fame to this little-known Oxford don including the cover of Time magazine.
