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.

Written and performed by Bruce Pachtman
Originally performed by Bruce Pachtman
A playwright dates a woman who presses him to write a show about her. She even inadvertently suggests the perfect title for this unusual romantic comedy that celebrates the triumph of a break-up when she cautions, “don’t make me look too psychotic.”
In a mesmerizing one-man performance, Bruce Pachtman engages us as a close friend having a heart-to-heart talk about every sordid and
savory detail of a romance gone bad. A superb craftsman on stage, Pachtman weaves a riveting, surprisingly provocative dialogue between himself, an East Coast native now living in San Francisco, and Gloria, the sexy, intelligent woman who wants … well, what does she want?
