A genius so assured he could write operas faster than secretaries could copy them, a genius so original even Bach cribbed his melodies, a genius so unconventional that his conflicting roles -- Catholic priest and creative renegade; cultural iconoclast and establishment favorite -- still shock people today, Antonio Vivaldi (1678 - 1741) remains an artist without equal. Now he comes to exuberant life in the new drama The Red Priest of Venice at the Shelton Theater. Today best known for The Four Seasons, Vivaldi was one of the most brilliant figures of the baroque period, a composer whose life was as passionate and stormy as his music. Compelling and humorous, this 90-minute show focuses on a critical period in his life when he began writing his most dazzling masterpiece ... and when he fell under the spell of two equally dazzling ladies.

AIN’T IT SO
Charles Johnson, a brilliant young San Francisco playwright, has written a superb one act dramatic comedy that captures the warmth, depth and respect for friendship between two African American couples.
Jim & Mattie and McCoy & Bessie are two retirement-age couples who harbor love and enduring friendship for each other, a friendship that has lasted for over forty years.
Their story takes place in a rundown apartment building in Chicago’s 1976 notorious Southside, where the streets are poppin’ and the nights are hot and long. It’s a sanctuary for some and a prison for others.
The two couples cope with issues that threaten to tear away at the tightly knit binds that have held African American families together since slaves in the United States became free.The Hundred Years War
by Holly Kern
An elderly black man, who has never voted, is encouraged by a young white woman to register to vote for the first time. The setting is 1965, during the height of the struggle for Civil Rights in America.
